Miscellaneous Mum - Trying to find the objective correlative, everyday
Reading. Writing. Parenting. Creativity.
Her: I’m going to live a simpler life in 2012. Pare everything back to the essentials.
Her: Take more photos, too.
Him: MORE photos?
Her: More meaningful ones, anyway.
Her: I need to remember to Instagram them more.
Him: Fair enough.
Her: And experiment with all the new frames and add-ons. And tag! I always forget that.
Him: Now it’s sounding… complicated again.
Her: And to send them to Facebook and Twitter and make sure they sync up where they’re supposed to.
Him: Right, because everyone needs to know what shade of nail polish you’re wearing.
Her: Shut up.
Him: And you can never have too many shots of your feet. Or your food.
Her: Are you mocking me?
Him: Never, dear.
Him: What are you doing?
Her: Oh, nothing.
Him: You took a photo of me, didn’t you?
Him (taking the phone off Her, reading the caption): “#asshole #hungover #whydoIbother #photoadayy
Her: Well, you deserved it.
Him: You spelled the hashtag wrong in ‘photo a day’
Her: Dammit, now I’ll have to fix it!!!!!
Him: Hey, chill.
Her: I was typing too fast, my fingers mashed it twice.
Him: Yeah, it’s the simple life all right. You’re relaxing by the second. I can see it.
Her: I think I need to put the phone away.
Him: I think that would be wise.

So funny. I’m overwhelmed with all this stuff. Trying to learn Instagram is on the to do list – because obviously the world needs to see photos of my feet.

Paring back to the essentials leaves free time to take up new and involving interests.

I have oft been accused of always having my nose in my phone. I assure you, I can stop whenever I want. (I just don’t want to.)
In fact, just the other day, I went a good three hours between playing with electronic devices. (Granted, this was the first half of a cross-country flight at 6 a.m. and I promptly activated an iPad to watch a movie when I woke up.)
Congrats on the VOTY honor.
