I did something embarrassingly nerdy yesterday.
Before that let me tell you about the accident that happened 2 days back.
My phone fell in the bath tub..
And it died.
Well, when such things happen first thing you should do is try not to have a heart attack.
I took it out within seconds dried it with towel and tried to switch it on…BIG MISTAKE!. I found that out later.
It did switch on took a few faint breaths and went to sleep again.
Next I did what we all do..go to the internet to look for ways to resurrect the poor thing.
There was no water damage. I checked. And then I put it in rice and just accepted the whole thing.
Fast-forward to yesterday.. I found myself in a hustling bustling food court without a smart phone for …you wouldn’t believe this…for 1 entire hour!!
I told you it’s unbelievable.
I looked into my bag that has its own galaxy for anything to keep me busy. I did keep a book but it was so noisy I wouldn’t be able to read.
I found 5 6 pens and pencils and papers of different sizes. I took out my mechanical pencil and the biggest piece of paper.
And started scribbling.
1 hour into a smartphone-less life, what used to be a clean lined paper looked like micro size of a newspaper.
It had words scattered all over the place and doodle of a crazy hairy monster.
And newspapers do have all sort of monsters..the crazy ones, the fancy ones.. the cunning ones..you get the idea!
It has 4 lists of reminders, 3 brand new poems, 4 titles for poems, title of my poetry book and layout for insta-poetry pictures
I don’t remember the last time I had such strong and productive brain storming session
Now on I might switch off my phone intensionally when i am writing.
The mess I created on that little piece of paper was quite satisfying.
It’s a beautiful mess in its own right
