I can't find my cell phone. And I'm losing my mind!!
I remember 15 years ago when I got my first cell phone, and it was large and clunky and I never turned it on, I only got it because I was pregnant and wanted something for emergencies. What did we do without these little lifelines that connect us to the rest of the world without ever having to go home and wait for that thing attached to the wall to ring? I feel lost and disconnected, like I've lost an appendage.
I can kind of relate to my daughter's angst when she gets her phone taken away (way too often). And kids these days have no concept of being without one. I remember being 14 and being so excited because we got Call Waiting on our home phone...I got it for my birthday, and I was over the moon because then I wouldn't miss anyone calling! And when I left the house, I truly disappeared. My mom had no real idea where I was till I got home. And I'd better be home at my curfew and not one second later and if something was going to delay that then I'd better find a PAYPHONE and call. And then I'd better be crippled and dying.
Okay, got off the subject, sorry.
I'm feeling the need to go scour the floorboard of my car, because maybe it's dead and missing me, and that's why it won't sing to me when I call it.
