I’ve got this awesome thing called a Droid and it’s basically like having God in my pocket. I don’t remember life before this gadget existed. Can you remember life before you learned to walk? It is my phone, alarm, calendar, internet provider, e-mail, mini ipod, camera, map, event reminder, flashlight, and GPS. I am not able to function without it. Okay, I can but life is significantly more difficult without it and I lose a lot of valuable time.
Today as I nuzzled my little pocket god and tickled the touch screen looking for an address, I suddenly thought of a time when I carried a map in my purse. When I first moved to this city I didn’t know my way around at all. For a ridiculously long time I had a hard time figuring out which way was north. I didn’t know where to find anything (groceries, hardware stores, drugs) so I would just wander and hope I would run into something. I was eighteen in the city by myself with no computer, Internet, TV, calendar, E-mail, Ipod, camera, or friends. I did, however, have a map that couldn’t help me find north. NOW I’ve got friends in low places AND a pocket god.
