El Celulareo?

Based on the recent discussion on mobile phones in the milongas. This is the cartoon I mentioned, from B.A. Tango No 198.

“It is astounding Brown. The mobile phone has invaded even the milongas.” “Shall we dance, Rosita?” “Yes, José!” “I’ll finish my coffee and we’ll dance.” “I’ll be waiting for you, Adriana”

    Seriously – last year at River Tango, where it was physically impossible to get directly from the seats to the floor or back again, and you had to squeeze along an entire row to sit down, like in the theatre, and you couldn’t see anyone at the corners because of the crowd of non-dancers watching – I could only get dances by text message.

    🙂 Extreme circumstances calls for extreme measures, no?

    I do admit, I have received invtations via text, but I think chatting on the phone is crossing the line.

    Thank you for commenting, Joli. I’m normally a tech guy, but the thought of inviting per phone never occurred to me, I usually don’t even bring my phone, or at least I turn it off or leave it silent, but I guess the times they are achangin’.
