(What if everyone on the train had a personal puppy instead of a cell phone?)
I might be on the edge of becoming a full blown tinfoil hat wearing crazy person at any moment...but I will spare those not in my immediate family my thoughts on the topic of radiation. Let’s just say that I have a suspicion that maybe it is not a boon to one’s health to spend a lot of time underground in a metal tube full of cell phones that are constantly searching for a signal.
These sorts of thoughts don’t stop me from riding the subway daily. But I am grateful that our younger son is tall enough that strangers on a crowded train can’t hover their phones directly over his skull while they scroll Facebook between stations.
But wouldn’t be nice if we were all looking at our own personal puppies instead of phones?
Dogs have been clinically proven to improve the health of their human companions, but they are not exactly encouraged on the subway.
