Pocket Talk

Kind of like pillow talk, only with pockets. Another article from a yet to be published blog:

Recent events have made me invest more thought into cell phones and our dependence on them. I was searching through my phone book a little, and looking at all the numbers of people who I will never talk to again, and the token numbers of people who I intend on never talking too ever again [who’s numbers I keep record of in order to intentionally avoid their phone calls….yeah…I’m like that]. I stumbled upon an interesting list of numbers that have been saved into my phone through no effort of my own. So here it is; a complete lexicon of ‘numbers my pocket likes’:

I don’t know why these are the numbers that my pocket chooses, but apparently it has a thing for nines. I’m still unclear exactly how the punctuation weasels itself in there, but if you ever need to dial ‘seven star pound plus’…I got the number.
