I Felt Out of Touch With The World. I Was Scared.

Wired or wireless, I’ve always been connected. A little too connected. A little too dependent on being connected. So this morning when my cell died— my charger was in my car; my car was left at the bar– and my Internet connection failed, I felt anxious. I could not check my email. The world was ending. I could not see people’s statuses or mood updates on the various social media outlets. I was having trouble breathing. I couldn’t text. My heart was racing. It was an emergency. And then my friend J (who gave me a ride to my car) and Frontier tech support saved me from my dangerous lapse into another time when there was no e-anything. I’m better now. Ahhhhhhhh.
