Monday when I left for work I didn't remember to take my cell phone. My car charger had quit and I had it on the home charger.
For the first 18 years of my life we never had a home phone. We used the neighbors phone on the rare occasion we had to place a call.
On my wanderings as a teenager I don't remember if I even had a "contact number" with me as I traveled and I was too young for an ID. Not sure how anyone would have figured out who I was if I could not tell them. I'm sure mom made me take something. I just do not remember.
I survived 50 plus years without a cell phone. So why did I feel "naked" without it on Monday.
The usual things popped in my head. What if I need to contact someone from work about my load or what if I have truck trouble. Or maybe I get hurt at work again and no one will be around to help. Luckily everything went without a hitch.
I want to think I am an independent person but I was unnerved by not having my cell phone. I'm not sure I like that.
On a different note.
Work is progressing on the Fiero. For those interested watch for "update" on the "Sam's Fiero" link.
