I was in a grocery store today waiting in line. The woman in front of me was paying for her groceries with one of these
I was a bit miffed I had to wait while she wrote out a check and entered the payee's name, check number and amount in her register. I always pay for things with one of these
But then I thought about all the things I do NOT do that most people DO do. For example, I do not do this
Another thing I do not do is this
I guess if I did I could enter up to 140 characters and enlighten the world with such things as "going downstairs to do laundry" or "thought Ricky G was funny on the People's Choice Awards."
But to Tweet or squeak or squawk or whatever it is called, I would need a phone that looks more like this
My phone looks more like this
Please don't get me wrong. I think technology is great. And I do plan to join the rest of the world one of these days. Or months. Or years.
Until then I will be doing this
rather than reading one of my favorite books like this
Technology is nice. But there are some things that are not so modern that I still like, too. For example, I still like to listen to these
on one of these (and I have one of these in my bedroom that I use a lot)
As with everything in life, you need to find a balance. The new, high tech gadgets are great. I love high definition TV and cell phones and .... but a beautifully leather bound book or the sounds of music coming from a record player are pretty nice, too.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
