The days of the pigeons and the post riders are long gone. With the phones getting smarter, you get smarter love as well. However, I’m not talking about the usual phone call that can be made anytime, anywhere, there has to be some dose of tease.
Well, welcome to the world of Not-if-cations or simply the notifications.
You have your eyes desperately glued to the phone screen without going through the typical blink for seconds and then constantly waking the phone up from the sleep and patiently waiting for a notification from someone special. Alas! there’s nothing. There’s nothing for hours and sometimes maybe for days. You’ll definitely lose some hair, your sleep and your peace of mind, your heart isn’t going to be at ease and this my friends is cyber homicide. You check for the network, you confirm the battery percentage and you wait. You try to get away, you pretend like it’s no big deal, you walk around but you still wait. You assume a million excuses, you try to fool your heart and you still wait.
My phone keeps beeping, there’s Instagram, there’s Facebook, there’s Twitter and I even get calls from people I haven’t spoken to in years, there is so much more, but the only thing I care about, the only voice I want to hear isn’t there.
