What one has, one ought to use: and whatever he does he should do with all his might.
- Cicero, Great Roman Orator, Politician, and Philosopher (B.C. 106-43)
Can someone explain this to me?
Yesterday, I’m sitting in a meeting with a client, I feel my iPhone begin to vibrate in my left-hand as it rests on top of the left pocket of my jeans, I’m listening to the client and nodding as I’m feeling the vibrations in my left hand, on, off, on, off and then I realize . . . the phone isn’t actually under my left-hand at all.
I casually move my right hand to check the other pocket and sure enough, I feel the shape of the phone in my right-hand pocket! With wallet between leg and phone, my right leg doesn’t feel a thing, but as I’m searching it out, I can now feel the phone vibrating in my right-hand as well, but the vibration is even more distinct in my left hand as I let it lay it in place on my empty left-hand pocket.
The whole time I manage to keep a straight face, but all the while, I’m marveling at the sensation of a phone in my right pocket vibrating in my left hand.
