Modern Conveniences

How can we live without them?

I lost my cell phone this week and I’m heartbroken. It’s not so much that I had an emotional attachment to my phone, but I had lots of pictures in it and I hate losing them. Oh, and I’ve really come to depend on it. I feel completely lost without it.

I think of the other things we have and wonder if I could “live” without them. I need the internet. No ifs ands or buts about that. It’s a tool for my writing. TV/Tivo? Yeah, okay, I probably could live without it, but I have too many shows that I really enjoy watching, and I dont know what I’d do without my news. We have Sirius. Yeah, I could live without that.

Actually that’s not a whole lot. But a heck of a lot more than when I was a kid. We didn’t even have a VCR until I was around 16 years old and we didn’t have cable tv. The internet was unheard of and we didn’t have a PC.

Its amazing how different lifestyles were back then. I actually miss it.

  1. My DD is often shocked that we didn’t have stuff like the internet or cable when I was little. Heck, we didn’t even have microwaves! I can still remember reheating leftovers on the stove, LOL.We’re so spoiled now.

  2. I remember when my mom got her first microwave. My dad gave it to her for Christmas. She was thrilled (being the practical person she is). I was in my mid-late teens. That microwave lasted for years! Unlike the cheapos that have to be replaced every few years.
