Our precious



I tried to leave my smart phone in my office before a lecture.

But I got to the lecture, and lo and behold, there it was in my pocket.

I was reminded of Bilbo trying to leave the One Ring behind when he was leaving the Shire at the beginning of The Lord of the Rings.

I suggest that when you see people wandering around paying attention to their phones while neglecting the date / friend / child / spouse who is with them, picture them hissing "My precious," kind of like Gollum.
