For a moment i forgot how to access voice messages on my cell phone (it turned out to be a sales call). I think it was just a momentary lapse of memory, like when you forget what day it is. But, it has been a very long time since anyone has left me a voice mail.
Even before i went silent, the amount of voice mail i receive had been in a steady decline. Texting has taken its place as the preferred way of conversing. Very few people want to listen to messages anymore.
Texting is the fast food way of communicating. I have to admit that sometimes i miss a nice four course conversation.
