I know that sounds like I broke up with my boyfriend or lost my dog or something. Thankfully, it's nothing like that (and I don't have dogs anymore, sadly)...
But yesterday, I realized how reliant I am on my smartphone. Because it just stopped working.
|Ah, my beautiful dork phone. I love you so... RIP.|
For no particular reason.
People who know me well will know how much of a blow that is for me. Not that I love my phone... Ok, well, I DO love my R2-D2 phone, but it's not one of my kids or anything...
But it's like losing your car when you need it to get around.
It's a useful piece of technology that I have come to rely on to run my business and my life. I'm a full time mom and a lawyer and launching a new business. I use my phone to do work and keep my schedule while I'm out running my kids around to Cub Scouts and gymnastics and back and forth to school, etc.
And yesterday.... nada.
I'm not sure that it's normal to rely on something so much, but I do. I kept reaching into my back pocket, looking for it like it was a safety blanket. And it wasn't there.
I should be getting a new one by express post today (Memo to me... Insurance on the phone is a good thing. Thank goodness I had it. Don't ever get a phone without it....) and I'm gonna sit around like a good addict waiting for her dealer to arrive. Jonesing for my new phone...
Yeah, some things never change...
Just Keep Coming Back
