Well, not quite - but I might as well have because it's got to the point that I don't recognize Herself unless her face is lit by the glow of cat videos screening on her mobile phone.
It's often the case that we will put on a film to watch and we might as well be in separate rooms.
I am only marginally better - switching on my portable computer pad maybe 3-4 times during a film and more if its a programme that is only just holding my interest.
Sometimes I wonder how we got from a world where a telephone was a big lump of plastic sitting in a booth three streets away to one where you can't walk down a street without having to jump out of the way of someone who is avidly reading something on their screen, where it's somehow ok to have a phone in your pocket that costs £800 plus whilst people starve and go without water.
I regularly travel for up to three-four hours a day to work, sat on a train with a bunch of other people. During my time i generally have a go at the free newspaper's crossword (that I only ever seem able to finish on a Thursday) and listen to music or a radio podcast on my phone. I rarely look at the screen itself unless to check a text.
But I am the odd one out - 90% of the rest of the train are glued to the latest game/episode of some programme/youtube video.
And it's not just on the street or on the train - it's everywhere. The people of the 21st century seem to have developed an almost insatiable need to be constantly entertained and it's a very real possibility that our attention span is suffering.
Just recently I went to a concert at a local venue. It was the first big concert i'd been to for nearly 3 years. Back when I first started going to gigs, before you needed a second mortgage to buy tickets, everyone was stopped and searched at the entrance and cameras taken away - something that is now impossible as everyone has a camera in their pockets.
And all through the gig there were people holding up their cameras; recording the gig, recording themselves - posting it on youtube or facebook...and it has to be said that the image and sound quality is amazing: almost professional standard and yet recorded on a phone.
But hang on a minute: there's a problem here. It seems that it's not enough to go to something and enjoy it - for it to actually have happened you have to record it, share it on social media and have your "friends" like it
But are we, I wonder, losing our ability to live in the moment; to enjoy what we are doing right here, right now.
Do yourself a favour: put your phone/tablet away the next time you go somewhere or watch something: try and enjoy the world for what it is
Unless there's a video of cats available, obviously!
