Saturday Morning Guilt Trips

Ah, the days when people didn’t have mobile phones.  What were those like again?  I managed to escape the first five years or so of cellular popularity on the instinct that submission was a bad move, and indeed I was right.  We are so connected now that I get to hear about things I do not care about even on the go.

Landlines are nearly (relatively*, for younger people) obsolete.  That in and of itself should mean we’re halfway back to the primitive, but it’s not so thanks to addictively delicious technology.  Imagine what it would be like to always have to communicate in person.  I can admit, I would probably hate that.  Or maybe it would be so commonplace that all would think nothing of it.

Not that I’m knocking technological advancement.  I like everything about my phone except the phone part.  It would just be nice to have a day off without someone calling and laying the grief so thick on me that there’s no motivation left.


About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
