You may find this hard to believe, especially from such a high-tech guy such as myself, who has two blogs and freely downloads music on a P2P file sharing system, but I don’t own a cell phone. Nope, don’t have one. Don’t feel the need.
Cell phones were cool when I was out in the field fighting crime in Probationland. Damn, if shit started going down, I wanted to be able to call somebody, and call em fast! But now, in retirement, a cell phone seems more like electronic monitoring, than any thing else. I don’t want people calling me, Tweeting me, or sending be a text. [ I’m still a ‘text’ virgin]. Then there’s FaceBook. Never done that either. Way too much like posting your own ‘rap-sheet’ of prior arrests, with confessions to match.
I guess I don’t want people to know what I’m doing, except of course when I’m blogging, and then the spigot is on full blast. Hope ya get a blast outta this one. I’m not telling.
