Booking Through Thursday: Mayday!

Ok, for some reason my computer won’t let me cut and paste the description of the challenge so I will just go ahead with it.

Cell phone ringing in the grocery store — hmmm — well, if it is at the bottom of my purse I won’t hear it and if I DO hear it, the person will have already hung up.

If it is a family emergency, I won’t be thinking about reading.

If it is a family emergency like in the DC area, I would have to get on a plane and be worried out of my mind about the family so I wouldn’t be able to concentrate anyway — I mean, really — how can one try to help drive the plane and go into severe family emergency crisis mode AND read? Get real.

Of course, if the emergency were in DC, M would be saying “no, don’t come, I have it covered. We are fine”.
Fine, right. How could they be fine without me? Well, ok, they HAVE been fine without me but, well, you know.

So, if it were a local family emergency I would be involved in dealing with the emergency and therefore, would not be reading. In the DFW area, it isn’t advisable to drive on one of our many congested, fast paced highways and read simultaneously. Texting, however, seems to be perfectly acceptable.

So, in my case, reading and family emergencies don’t go well together.

So, I wouldn’t take anything.

  1. Well Cuzzie, of course they couldn’t really be fine without you! But they would tell you that in order to keep you from flying around in planes which you know “they” don’t trust at ALL! Hmmmm. You know, I’m such a dinosaur – I don’t even know how to do texting from a cell phone. 21st century? What 21st century?

  3. “Texting, however, seems to be perfectly acceptable.”LOL!! Here in Houston that seems to be more the norm than the exception, too. 🙂

  5. becca– I know — very scary. And just think — there used to be the day when people were enraged because makeup would be applied in the car — while it was going! Who knew?
