My Achilles Heel

I must confess that I have frequently derided those cell phone “addicts” and have bragged about my cell phone “living” in my car. The world survived very well without phones in our pockets until just a few years ago. Why is the availability of a telephone so integral to happiness now? A few days ago, my partner’s laptop went kaflooie. It would not accept the password that allows the Windows 7 programs to load. The diagnosis was that it might be a virus. The important point here is that the only way I could recharge my iPod Touch was by using a USB attachment that I plug into his computer. That meant that I would not be able to access the Internet or my e-mails or Text Plus once my iPod battery ran down. Suddenly I was in the same category as the cell phone “addict.” Can I survive? I must.
