Missing Person/ Animal/ Cellphone
Submitted by Pushpanjali (Urmi), the Union City Library Member
I miss my first cellphone that my parents gifted to me after I finished my high school. A very basic Nokia model that was just capable to send messages, and dial numbers. And it also had Snake II — a game that I did not like particularly yet played when I was bored.
I miss that phone terribly. It rang when someone wanted to reach out to me and it delivered messages to my friends I wanted to hang out with. Otherwise, it used to just lay around somewhere on my study table.But that phone was way better than my current smartphone. Why? My current smartphone is similar to a clinging boyfriend; updating me about my whereabouts, notifying me about my daily schedule, making me look stupid by staring at it for hours, and isolating me from my surroundings. Oh! I wish I could get back that Nokia 3310.
