Don’t Call Me; I’ll Call You

When Dimitris planned his latest trip to Greece to spend time with his mom and sister, I knew that I needed to have a back-up plan for support in case I were to fall or have a medical emergency. I considered calling a friend every day just to check in. That seemed like an unwieldy plan so I dismissed it. I certainly was not going to ask someone to check on me every day. Finally, it was Dimitris who came up with a workable plan which was to bring in my cell phone which “lives” in the car, turn it on and leave it on every day all day, and then plug it in to be recharged each night. Before Dimitris left, I practiced with the phone which I have hardly ever used. Dimitris even programmed into the contacts our friend Ted Ciske who lives across the street as he could get to me quickly were there an emergency. What I did not check out was how to answer the phone. Let’s hope that there will be no one who calls, knowing my partner is out-of-town, and panics when I don’t answer the phone.
