My Cell Phone Woes - SOLC 7
I walked out the door without my cell phone this morning. I didn't realize my error until I got to work and was trying to find it in my purse to shut it down for the ISTEP test. Immediately I went into panic. How would I contact my family? How were my family going to contact me? What if my car breaks down on the way home? What is on my phone calendar that I won't remember now? I hate that I forgot my phone and I hated that I was so reliant on it in the first place.
How did I ever get to the point where I needed to have a phone with me at all times? I certainly hadn't grown up with a cell phone. My first cell phone was in college. I wasn't attached to it then but now the thought of not having it for one day was giving me quiet an anxious feeling. This feeling stayed with me all through my after school meeting until I was finally home and could check my phone for messages. :)
