The Curse of the Iphone

Hand written on a piece of notebook paper is my blog entry I knew I would run sometime this week.  This was written on Sunday, October 6th.

I have a pit in my stomach.  I know I’m missing something. Someone could be trying to reach me. There could be an emergency. I feel like I’m going to throw up!

For less than an hour, sitting in this car, I am without my cell phone.  It is home and I am sitting in this parking lot of PetSmart waiting for my foster dog to come home from an in-town adoption event. No one is here and I don’t know if the van is later coming back from the city or I am late in meeting it.  I want my phone!

Normally I would be on the phone checking but here I am living “old school.”  I grew up like this. I spent most of my 20s without anyone having 24/7 access to me.  Andy and I might have bought our first cell phone in the early 90s but that was strictly for emergencies like when the car ran out of gas while I was driving on the Major Deegan Highway in the Bronx (note: not my fault – the gas gauge said half a tank!).  I didn’t use the monster-sized cell phone to entertain myself — just to call Triple A.

Now we can’t seem to live without the glow of the Iphone or Android or whatever “smart” phone you have. Sure wish I had even the old giant-sized Motorola with the giant antenna right now. I have been here for 45 minutes without seeing anyone from the rescue.  I hope I have to drive back and pick Kibbles up from somewhere.

My heart broke a little thinking that Kibbles was adopted and I wouldn’t see him again.  Luckily for me, it was just a snafu between the rescue not being able to reach me and when they didn’t see me in the parking lot they took him to another volunteer’s house.  I happily picked him up later that night.  He’s my right hand man and this week he met a new best friend Yogi.  Yogi is a new client for me.  Enjoy this video of Kibbles and Yogi!

    I absolutely love to see babies running and playing in the yard. It is hysterical to watch! And mom/dad understand about the phone thing. It’s like an extension of your arm these days. You’re just naked and alone without it. XOXO – Bacon
