Our hated but venerated smartphone: The portal to a world of possibilities; that little blue screen shining a light on the universe, offering joy and connection, yet also rejection and isolation.

Brunch Lady will ensure your late morning meal will never be quite the same again…
pray it wasn’t you who ordered the avocado on toast.
