Suddenly Sans Cellphone
Not me actually, my husband. He ended up going to work without his phone; I'll leave the story at that, sans details. The story isn't the story. Nu, does that make sense?
We're used to checking in, his letting me know when he'll be back, which bus etc. Also if the bus is delayed. Today isn't a routine day, which makes for more guess work. There was a time when that was the norm, but now it's odd.
In some ways life was less stressed when we didn't know every detail, when we had to accept that we're not in control, that we can't really predict.
I remember waiting for various people, having to just wait, wonder when I should just "give up."
Today it's call, call and call. Now with "call waiting" calls are even interrupted, so different from years ago.
Is today better, or worse?
