Which phone?

Phones, mobile or land lines, they are what our lives are made of lately. Got a smart phone- a Droid, or iPhone, maybe a BlackBerry? Remember when…those days you could actually get off the phone and stay off? Ever have the phone taken off the jack and locked away in a closet, just to curb your talking?

Nowadays, we not only yap all day long; we keep our lives in a phone. The schedules, the music, the reminders, the groceries lists always make it into mine! My husband and I have an extra appendage called the text beeper that the hospitals we work for supply us with. At one point I saw my husband in scrubs looking like a cowboy from the wild west. Around his waist was his blackberry, his text beeper, the on-call beeper, and a small digital camera they use to take pictures of surgical procedures, with stethoscope rounding out the now very low riding scrub pants in his back pocket. “Armed and ready, huh?”

Our household is mobile with mobile phones. The land line phone at home was disconnected, we never made use of it. We leave, our phones go with us. Caesar is smart but he can’t maneuver a phone!

My husband the other day had me in stitches. He had called one of his brothers, a normal occurrence. First he dialed one number, then another, then a third, and a fourth. On the fifth phone he finally caught up with his brother.

“Can you tell me how many phones you have? I think I’ve called half of Yemen trying to reach you!” This is younger brother calling an older one, by the way.

“What you mean how many do I have? The usual…”

“You usually have five phones?!”

“Well I have to talk with different people you know.”

“So instead of different ring tones, you have different phones!”
