I hope this actually gets posted today. The internet has been extremely unreliable here this week. I think it’s been down more than it’s been up. Very frustrating. It just comes and goes but mostly goes.
But then I got to thinking. Whatever did I do before I had WiFi? I couldn’t ask Alexa for the weather forecast or to tell me one of her corny jokes.
Synonym and antonym checker. Definitions. An actual dictionary in the form of a book.
Calendars. Paper ones that hang on a wall or sit on a desk.
Emails. Nope, snail mail that involved a letter and a stamp and finding a mailbox.
News. 11 o’clock on TV. Not available 24/7 by merely tapping a key.
Taking a course or going to church. In the comfort of my own home. No need to go out in nasty weather. Don’t even have to get dressed.
I could go on but I won’t. But I will say that I’ve become extremely reliant on my dear friend the internet teetering on the edge of addiction.
What about you?
Well, it appears that I’ll have to post this using the data on my phone plan. Wi-Fi is down yet again in the house. But it is working on my phone. Unfortunately I don’t have Alexa on my phone. I wonder if she misses me.
