How’s Your Text Life?

Posted by:

Several months ago, I was out on an unpromising date with a guy who had a career in creating  iPhone apps.   Since the only thing we seemed to have in common was respiration, I tried to kill time by expressing interest in his profession.  At one point I told him about an idea that I’m still obsessed with creating: an iPhone breathalyzer that blocks texting once the user has had too much to drink.  Brilliant, right?  I’m sure the ...

I’m not quite sure what I expected after my very first acupuncture session.  When I made my appointment, the only thing bothering me was a pair of slightly creaky, achy knees-the result of several minor car accidents and years of waitressing.   I made my appointment out of simple curiosity, and so had no real pressing issues to work on at the time.
