On Communication and Not Freaking Out

I try not to be distracted by fear and hope...

So, yesterday, Lost Valyr released and today, I am chilling and possibly hiding out so that I won’t keep checking to see how well the book is doing. So here’s a pretty picture the hubs called “Communication on the Move.” 

While I try not to be distracted by fear and hope (that readers will love my new book), let’s talk about communicating (and help me stay distracted):

Are you old enough to remember the world before cell phones?

Does it sometimes freak you out when you think about how much the world has changed? 

Do you ever get communication overload and have to hide from your cell phone (at least while you go to the bathroom)?

Do you remember when it was sort of weird that your hotel room had a phone in the bathroom and now you hear people talking in the stall next to yours at the airport (added this to my list of why I plan to never get on a plane again if I can help it)?

Do you get withdrawal if you don’t get a text for an hour or don’t get social media?

Would you recognize a phone booth if you saw one? 

Would you recognize a telephone when you see it? 

Do you even have a land line in your house anymore?

I can remember when we would drive all day and we checked in the with the folks using phone booths, so they wouldn’t worry. I can remember when you had to stand or sit by your phone to talk, because the cords wouldn’t reach that far. I remember when the cords got longer and they’d get twisted and weird from being stretched to the utter limit. I remember my first wireless house phone. And my first cell phone. 

I feel really old. LOL How about you?

Perilously yours,

Pauline
