I spend hours looking at him and holding him close to my body. I never grow tired of his touch or his presence in my bed.  If I ask, he answers my every need. I don't know what I would do without him. Yet, at some point, one of us will die.

Yet, there's solace in knowing I can get another - maybe in metallic pink next time.  

Are you too in love with your phone? Do you need a break but you don't know how to get some space? 

It's complicated. Smartphones sparked Black Lives Matter, the takedown of Bill Cosby, and the Arab Spring. On the flip side, phone abuse may contribute to teenage suicide, intimidating witnesses in court, and changes in our brains. 

On Wednesday, June 20, The Colin McEnroe Show will help you decide if you need to break up with your phone. 

Call our voicemail number - (860) 580-9677 - and tell us about your relationship with your phone. Do you die a little inside when you misplace it? 

When you call us, it's just you and (our) phone. No one will be at the other end. If you mess up, just start over, or call the line and start over again. We'll edit out the mistake. Please try and limit your message to three minutes.
