Imagine you’re twenty years behind the times, you just got your first cellphone, and you’re still very clumsy using the Text Message feature.
Now imagine your friend has just sent you three texts in rapid succession, and you’re struggling to read them and reply, but are too slow.
And now imagine that, while reading one of the messages of a very personal nature, your finger slips and hits a wrong button, and a voice begins, rather loudly, to read your message to you, and it contains the phrase “hearing from hot guys on Grindr”.
And this happens while you’re in a communal part of the hostel where you’re staying, and there are other people around, within earshot!
And you’re so embarrassed you try to quickly close the phone so the voice will shut up, and you almost drop the thing in the process!
That was a funny moment that happened to me this evening, which at the time didn’t seem so funny.
Sometimes my life is a soap opera. But sometimes it’s a sitcom.
