Sentence: Kat experienced cellparation anxiety one morning when her blackberry died abruptly in the middle of a tweet. Realizing that she would have to communicate face to face with people, she began to panic and tried to call in a sick day. Unfortunately, she did not have a landline, so she spent the morning cowering in her cubicle until lunch when she could go to the mall for a new cell fix.
