No Power!

So yesterday while celebrating St. Patty's day my phone died!
I felt powerless... figuratively and literally.

In a city with poor public transportation and not knowing the cab number...I came to the stark realization that I also do not know many of my friends phone numbers. Seriously, how many of your friends numbers do you know?

What do we do to make a call today? Do we dial a number? I think not:-) Most of us simply search through our directories and click on a name. I feel that as a society we are putting ourselves in a very vulnerable position. Are we in control of where our energy comes from? Nope...and with out energy, where is our information?

Something to thing about on a Sunday....

Make it a great day,


ps...I find this is an interesting write considering our recent dialogue over energy.

I hear you. I am screwed without my phone directory. I have to stop and think about what my home number is when someone asks me. lol

Because phones hate me- and I go through them like water- I have learned to have a PAPER phone and address book as a back up.

My phone was drowned in a spilled cup of water in the stroller's cup-holder on our first day of vacation, and I realized that I only know Kyle's number, and family numbers that I memorized before I ever had a cell phone. Although I was always with someone who had a cell phone, it felt funny to be without my blackberry, always checking my email and texts. I am happy now that I spent my vacation without that phone attached to me...but not happy to buy a new one!

Do you carry your phone & address book with you Tilly? There has to be a simpler solution! Sara I was thinking, the numbers we knew in the BC days...Before Cells! lol :-)
