There are some things in life that although they are not really necessities, you become so dependent upon them that you literally have a difficult time functioning without them.

I am a lover of all things technological. Computers and phones and gadgets are such wonderful tools that when used properly and not abused, can enrich lives and bring people closer together.

I have a very deep and abiding love for certain gadgets – my cell phone is one of them. I rarely use it, but just know it’s there if I want to use it — it gives me such a sense of security. Weird, isn’t it?

In fact, I’ve had one for so long now that I don’t even remember what life was like before I one with me 24/7. I mean, how did I ever manage those late night trips to the Mart that Mister Sam built? For that matter, how did I manage to feel confident about doing anything any distance from my home in my old beat up ’96 minivan?

Yes, I’m totally waxing nostalgic tonight. I’m feeling a tad bit blue because I can’t find my cell phone. Anywhere. It’s el-gone-o. No where to be found-o. So in honor of my lost cell phone, I shall now write a poem:

O Cell Phone, Cell Phone! wherefore art thou Cell Phone?
Deny thy hiding place and reveal thyself to thee,
Or, if thou wilt not, be but found my love,
I shall no longer be phoning my friends.
And I might have to drink some poison to get over it.
Okay, that last line was a joke.
Sort of.

The end.

    I was thinking about my cell phone last week, when Hubs & I were separated in Wal-Mart – we basically played Marco Polo over the phone until we found each other. How did we EVER find anyone in a huge store like that before cell phones??

    Thanks for the early morning giggle, Karen! I lose my cell phone about once a week, but it somehow always comes home, wagging its tail behind it . . .

    Oh no! But I must say, you must be a lot younger than me because I have no trouble remembering a time without cell phones. But I too love all things gadget. I hope you find it! Lisa~
