visited an orphanage for teens in the dream. The orphans sat at a big desk together but screened off from each other by partitions on the desk. There was a cup of water in front of each orphan. They were intent on inserting their smartphones in the cup of water. In and out, in and out and in and out single-mindedly. I never seen such thing before. I was really curious and observed them for a while. Why are they doing this...? But they seemed to just waiting a call from their friends or boyfriend in that way. 

When I woke up, I realized that they just looked like they were giving a hand job to their smartphone .We may all the orphans if you never turned off your smartphone.

A dream of orphans inserting their smartphones in cups of water.
