“The Black Hole. The Upside Down. The Sunken Place. Guantanamo Bae. We don’t have a name for it yet but this is where phones and PlayStation controllers go when my chirruns decide to ignore my warnings about not breaking rules, not studying, being a punk to their sibling, etc. Once I set the length of time and press lock there’s no turning back. There’s no code to open before the timer expires. An iPhone 6 is currently taking a three day dirt nap in it. Solitary Conphonement. Parenting is fun!”
