Cell Phone, Cell Phone, Wherefore Art Thou, Cell Phone?

The other day I forgot my cell phone at home. Talk about feeling naked!  All day I felt as if something was missing, and something was just not quite right with me.  It sucked! I started thinking to myself, "Good grief! Have I really grown so dependent on that thing that I'm actually having withdrawals!?" How in the world did we ever exist without cell phones???  I still remember when pagers were the all the rage!  I do have to admit though, that being without the cellie all day was kind of liberating too. I wasn't bound to anything or committed to answering phone calls and text messages. I wasn't logging onto Facebook every other hour. I had to resort to talking to people the old fashioned way: via telephone.  Imagine that!   It was quite nice.
I was free of all that madness. 

At least until I got home.

The cell phone does keep people busy. I love having one though.

Sometimes I'm happy to realize that I accidentally left my phone off for most of the day. It is a peaceful feeling.
