Must you go away?

He turned his head and looked at her, sitting perched prettily on the coffee table and smiled. ‘I’m only going for a quick jog around the block.’

But, I’ll miss you! Take me along. Please!

He laughed and said, ‘Nope. I think I need to do this alone.’

Fine.He could swear that he saw her pouting. Is it someone else? Are you replacing me after all this time?

Now he laughed out loud. ‘Replace you? After 7 years of loyal service? How could you even think that?’

Well, then, what if there’s an emergency? How do I reach you?

‘You’ll tell me when I am back. In 20 minutes. Surely, you can manage that as part of your job description.’

There was no answer to that one. He shrugged and let himself out the door. Once outside, he took a deep breath and thought to himself:Β I really need the break. I’m beginning to imagine all sorts of things. Well, maybe it’ll make for a good book. He then jogged off into the night.

Inside, on the table, she sat, her screen glowing a neon blue, blinking and displaying a couple of messages and missed calls. She couldn’t believe he’d left her- the iPhone- behind!

  1. LOL πŸ˜€ That’s a good one. The last trip made me realize that it isnt difficult to divorce our gadgets. The first day when there was no phone network and no internet, I restlessly checked, even restarted the device a couple of times. But once the realization seeped in, the phone was used just as a clock and an alarm. No anxiety pangs, no feeling of missing out on anything. So, yes, it can be done!

  2. That’s a good one Shailaja! And Very few people can wean themselves away from teh phone even if for a short while. They will have withdrawal symptoms πŸ™‚

  3. You are becoming quite adept at the clever mis-direction strategy. We could all do with a little less Siri in our lives……says I, as I type on my iPad! πŸ™‚

  4. Hehehe… Well my android also does the same. I guess they’re related, his iPhone and my android πŸ˜‰ Awesome end to your story as always.

  5. Hahaha! I’m all for getting away from online activities now and then. No iphones here! When I’m out, I’m disconnected and that’s a good thing, since I work from home all the time. Another clever one, Shailaja! πŸ™‚

  6. Hahahaha – a break up pause we all should do from time to time though. Hm. but now he might regret— how to take his sweaty post-jog picture??:-) hehe

  7. I first thought it was a parrot but too eloquent in its speech! πŸ˜‰ I guess ’cause I don’t have an iphone; however, even a cellphone can be addictive… in fact, all of technology can it seems! πŸ˜‰ The expression “We can’t live with it, we can’t live without it” comes to mind. πŸ˜‰ <3

  8. Haha that was some twist we all could relate to-The neon blue screen holds much significant part of our lives… Good one πŸ™‚

  9. Oooh! A twist in tale! Though I must agree that each time it pisses me off when the person I’m trying to have a conversation with has their nose inside their phones.

  10. After reading the first five of your posts for A-Z, I finally managed to guess what it was two-thirds of the way. But still had a good laugh. Kudos! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  11. hahahhaha…we all need to do that once in a while! I thought it was his dog…but you had me stumped!

So, what did you think?
