Seriously, I think I might be the last person on earth that doesn't have the world at their fingertips.
Ok, I'm exaggerating a little... I'm sure there's probably at least 2 or 3 people out there that have a trac-phone like myself. (My wife being one of them).
Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a Smartphone... but not right now.
Why, might you ask?
Well, besides cost (which is the initial factor that my wife and I debated)... it has to be that I see so many people (especially today's teenagers and college-aged students) engrossed in their phone ... all of the time!
In the park.
At a sporting event.
I know, I know... you have one, and love it.
I'm sure I would, too.
Maybe not, though. Let's think about it for just a second.
Were our lives THAT much different without these exceptional devices that can be held in our pocket, and pulled out in a moment's notice to answer ANY question imaginable?
Before cell phones (and specifically Smart phones)... people actually ... talked.
And read books.
And played games.
And went for long walks ... and discussed life.
Without being bothered by a tweet, or a picture, or an e-mail, or a (you fill in the blank).
Part of me wants to go back to that era of not having everything at my fingertips... but it's also intriguing to have some kind of connectivity with the world.
I'll keep my trac phone for now.
And keep the lure of a Smart phone... away for a little while longer.
I'm going to go for a walk... and leave my phone at home.
