The Universal Cellphone Bulge

Helping Casie audition for
her fall play, students
paraded before us
down stage cen-
ter and their

commonality was nearly
all carried cellphones
tucked in their clo-
thing. Call if you
need a ride

mothers can say univers-
ally, knowing full well
there is a line of
from where-

ever they are. So much
more efficient than
pay phones. The
little darlings are
just a touch

away. And it won’t be for
several years that they
won’t bother to look
at their mess-
ages, if the

in-coming call is made at an inconvenient time.
