Lost and Then Found

We had a little drama last week we R couldn’t find her cell phone. Are we plugged into tech culture, or what? It wasn’t a huge deal because the phone only cost about $10, it as a Tracfone, which are dirt cheap. They usually use old phones that nobody wants, anyway. The one I got cost $5, and it works perfectly fine. On the other hand, we don’t like to think of things as disposable and expendable, because that’s just a wasteful way of thinking, right?

In the end, our cell phone needs are minimal, and we don’t need fancy smart phones or texting devices. For the record, we have texting capabilities, though I’ve never used it. Anyway, R couldn’t find the phone, and we looked everywhere before deciding that it was gone. Sort of inconvenient, but not the end of the world. Boy, you realize that when you tie your happiness and peace of mind to devices and material possessions, you become a slave to them.

Well, as luck would have it, R received a phone call from the police department informing her that they’d found her phone, and nobody had used the minutes on it. Again, it’s a cheap phone that most people would not even bother with, so someone must have turned it in, untouched. Now we have our phones back, and life is good.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to stplast for the pic.
