This phone in my hand is already outdated. In a few years it will be in a box of old devices no longer useful just like all the devices that came before it.
The person in front of me is human – a miracle of DNA and life and breath. No matter how much they scare me, no matter how they annoy me, whether or not I agree with their opinions, this person is unique among all other humans.
And now is my chance, during my one wild and precious life, to put down the outdated and instead encounter the miracle in front of me. I'm worth it and they are worth it.
