Dear iPhone, Computer, Radio, iPod, television, and DVD player —
I wanted to let you know that I won’t be able to see as much of you all over the next 40 days. You know I love you all; in fact, I spend more time with you guys than anyone else. But lately, things have just gotten a little too serious between us. It seems everytime I try to have a conversation with a friend or spend a little time by myself, you’re there. You’re always interrupting me, and sometimes, you even try to get my attention while I’m sleeping.
Mostly, I think we need a break because even when I’m with you, I don’t feel like I’m really “there,” you know. My mind is in too many different places. It’s not you; it’s me. I need some time apart to try to get things worked out in my own life again. Then, when it’s time, our relationship will be a lot healthier.
I’m sure I’ll see you around over the next couple of weeks; I can’t talk on the phone or blog or check my email without running into one of you. But I just won’t be spending as much time as usual, and when we’re together, I want it to just be one on one time. I don’t want you all there at once. It’s not fair to any of us.
I hope you understand . . .
