Here Is Your Open Thread

I mentioned the New Me in passing to many people in the weeks after Stacey’s voice mail, including Stacey. Guess what? I’m a person who answers her phone now! Call me and see.

This week’s NYT Magazine Lives essay comes from Caeli Wolfson Widger, who writes about not being busy at work (or really, anywhere), and ignoring phone calls and voicemails she receives on her cell because she prefers communicating via text messages and email. The Way We Communicate in Modern Times, etc. Also, please answer your mother’s phone call, she misses you and doesn’t know how to text that well.
