My smartphone is my demise

It starts with 5 minutes of free time. I’m checking WhatsApp. Checking my emails. Then I notice my update from Pinterest. Waste an hour looking at ‘kids bedroom’ ideas or funny movie quotes…

Or I’m playing Solitaire with one hand while rocking my daughter to sleep with the other.

It’s night, I’m going to bed. But I’m not quite ready to sleep, yet. Let me see what I could make for dinner tomorrow. I spend an hour browsing recipes. Or perhaps I should check what new restaurant we could visit next time we’re out. So I end up scrolling through Urban Moon Kuwait or Talabat listings until after midnight.

The tendons in my hands hurt from holding that stupid damn thing. My eyes strain.

Tomorrow I’ll do it again.
