I found myself recently
at a body hacking conference,
which might not _be_ what you expect.
I saw no makers or diys,
all caucasians and asians,
and most of them in suits.
The speaker at the side-stage
started talking about "severance compensation",
which seemed like a memetic cluster-fuck to me.
So I sat down on a reclined chair,
thinking about raccoons gnawing at my shoulders when,
my thigh started to buzz.
Mind you, it did not feel like a muscle spasm -
too localized -
affecting the surface part of the rectus femoris,
and isolated to that area
by my phone.
Recently I started working from home,
and wearing exercise shorts,
which I find extremely comfortable,
but do not typically provide pockets,
especially not ones accommodated to heavy electronics.
As an aside,
as a male,
wearing pants without pockets
more difficult than speaking in e-prime.
Long story longer,
my pants contained no pockets,
and thus no phone to buzz,
yet these phantom buzzes occur
more and more frequently.
- The really odd thing,
when I check my phone messages,
someone called at that exact time.
It reminds me of an old wives tale
when your nose feels itchy,
someone talked about you.
