This has been my night and morning.
iMessage decided last night to randomly select texts to not send to me, then slowly release them to me hours later.
I discovered this when my son called demanding to know why I had not responded to his emoji art. Which I still have not received.
It got me wondering what would happen if iMessage just died. Well, to be fair, it’s been in some stage of death on my phone for many months.
But what if it just went away?
I wonder because it is the LAST FUCKING THING THAT HAS ANY APPLE-EXCLUSIVE VALUE ON THIS PIECE OF SHIT PHONE.
I think iMessage’s death, or the death of cellular data in general, would be the scene from WALL•E where the chairs stop working or whatever, and people notice there are other people and things to look at.
This isn’t a manifesto, or even the beginning of one, but I have for a few months been shoving this shit out of my life and actually living.
I’m glad it’s helping me leave it.
