Silence is Deafening


It's amazing when something as invisible as phone service is disconnected. We don't call people nor do we receive many calls. When I say we don't receive many calls, I mean we MAY receive 1 call per month...if we have a doctor's or vet appointment. So what is the problem?

No internet!

99% of our communication with family and friends involves email. We got over the IM addiction 10 years ago. Our world revolves around our computers -- looking up information, playing games, etc. These days, even single person games may require an internet connection, e.g., Left for Dead.

Cell phone? Our [single] cell phone is turned off unless we need to make reservations at a restaurant or when we are in a car accident. The phone gets turned off immediately after our call. Voice mail is often retrieved months later when I remember to check. Bug doesn't even know how.

We feel a bit shackled, but it's not even close to the end of the world. We still spend the same amount of time together, but we're more apt to spend it outdoors. A good thing, even though we are having spring thunderstorms every other day and forecasted to have snow next week.

No wonder you never return my calls.

You better have your cell phone on the weekend of the 4th of July or no Tulip Luncheon meat.
