Technology tried to take over my life, but I won! I’ll tell you my story.
It all began innocently a number of years ago. My wife Fern got a cell phone. I asked her “Why did you get a cell phone? What do you need it for? What’s wrong with the phone on the wall?”
She sweetly pointed out that our old phone was stuck to the wall. She sometimes wanted to talk on the phone when she was away from home.
I asked her “What’s wrong with the pay phones you find at truck stops and hospitals? Can’t you make calls on them?”
