The Life Among the Dead by OcularFracture The Life Among the Dead by OcularFracture
When there is a visit or a gathering, I am the only person who puts my phone away and tries to make a real connection. When someone tells a story, I maintain eye contact and listen carefully.
When I tell a story, I'm met with "mm-hmm" and "uh huh" and no one ever retains what I say.
It's isolating.

It sure is.  My family has instituted and no phone rule.  If we're all getting together, phones are to remain off or you face a barrage of insults and jests until you put it away.  It works most of the time.  No one seems to enjoy personal contact anymore.
