So, the other day I was talking to someone about how technology has robbed us of simple pleasures like writing letters. It's sad because our children have no clue as to what a letter and stamp is! I am determined to dig to find my last letter and plaque it, for it is a secret treasure.
Do you even know how to properly address a letter head? Are you knowledgeable on proper spacing and salutation etiquette?
Which leads me to this, (you know where I'm going don't you?) TECHNOLOGY!!! I was fine with the pager until a couple of decades ago when the cell phone became a demand. I am a simple kind of girl who does not like to be easily accessible. People knew that if I was not home, page me or leave a message. Nowadays, people can find anyone, anywhere, at anytime! Which messes up the old excuse "I'm sorry I didn't get your call". THAT SUCKS!! That excuse worked perfectly for me and I liked missing SOME calls (sad I know). All I ever wanted or needed was TTT (talk, text, take pics). However, now I will be one of the many millions who will be highly accessible. Because of my business I NEED to be reached at any time. So far, I love my team and I have yet to send anyone into voicemail. However I am sure there will be someone who is abusing my unlimited TTT. I marvel at the thought.
In a couple of weeks I will be a Droid girl. I'll tell you how I like it, but don't expect much! Till later,

(Guess what my son has for homework? He has to write a letter!!! The coincidence!! WOW!!)
