Here’s an idea

Let’s set aside one day a year when no one is allowed to carry a cell phone and see whether civilization as we know it collapses or not.  That will be the day I’ll be willing to meet friends for lunch because I know that they won’t be answering their cell phones in what I can only assume is their hope that the person on the other end is more interesting than me. It’s the day I know it will be safe to drive because drivers will have at least one free hand – the other, of course, will be holding their latte – and most of their attention on the road. And it will be the day parents will find out if their kids can actually make the decision to go pee without checking in with them first.

Think of the wealth of knowledge and joy this kind of day could bring.  Wow.
