Pick­ing up the phone

Pick Me Up! Special - - Real Life -

When’s the last time you ac­tu­ally had a proper tele­phone con­ver­sa­tion with your best mate? While you prob­a­bly chat with your near­est and dear­est ev­ery day through tex­ting and so­cial me­dia, these con­ver­sa­tions just don’t seem to have the same depth as an ac­tual voice call. There’s noth­ing bet­ter than hear­ing some­one you love – their ac­cent, their in­to­na­tions and the feel­ing in their voice. Phone calls force us to be more hon­est, too. Think about it – only a phone call has the power, through tone of voice, to shed light on what you’re re­ally think­ing. There’s no hid­ing how you re­ally feel, some­thing we all tend to do when we type out a text mes­sage. There’s just some­thing so sat­is­fy­ing about a good old­fash­ioned phone call with some­one who knows

you well. And re­mem­ber, there’s a big dif­fer­ence be­tween typ­ing ‘lol’ and ac­tu­ally laugh­ing out loud.
