October 28, 2005 Urban Word of the Day
to use technology for the sole purpose of avoiding (human) contact
I saw Jim headed in my direction and evoided him with my iPod.
When my mother-in-law started repeating herself for the tenth time, I pressed flash on my cordless phone and pretending to have an important business call incoming. It was a sucessful evoidance tactic that I plan to use more of.
When Bill heard the his girlfriend's car outside, he used the remote control to mute the audio on the CD, thereby evoiding her with the appearance of a quiet, unoccupied house and gaining a free pass for the day.
