There comes a time when you just cannot keep up
with a certain material thing, and what I am talking
about is the cell phone.
Days can go by and the thing will not ring, so it
stays charged as it should, but the other day was
It wasn’t a bad thing that happened, but for some
reason or another, I got more calls than I usually do
and I could not keep the things charged.
There were several times when I would be answering
sitting next to the plug where I was charging the cell
As I sat there attached to the one spot, it reminded me
of the old days when the phone was attached to the wall,
in some deep dark corner.
You were held hostage for this was the only way to make
a phone call, and to receive one. If you walked away, the
conversation was over with. Of course, this was the days
before even the cordless phones.
It would be amazing for those younger today, as we talk
all over the neighborhood, all over town, and everywhere
else aside from being stuck in the corner.
It did have its advantages though, for if you didn’t want to
be reached you only had to say later that you were out.
Nowadays being out doesn’t work, for we all carry our
cell phones with us. If someone doesn’t get a reply from
you, they know that you’re ignoring them.
Anyway, getting back to that fun filled plenty of cell calls
received, I eventually got caught up, and removed that red
streak on the cell. That means it is about out of juice and
I would not be receiving any more calls. Sometimes that
might sound like a good idea.
“As time marches down the hall-
One won’t find anymore phones attached to the wall.”
