Kill the Land Line


A friend is thinking about doing away with his land line telephone. He says the only people who call him on it are old friends and family. His logic is that they all love him and can adapt.

I’ve been without a land line for a year and haven’t missed it…except…when I lose my cellphone in the house and I can’t call myself with the landline so I can hear the cellphone ring and go to it.

Change is rarely a simple, easy path, but we adapt. Our ability to adapt is one of the great features about being human…well…that and opposable thumbs. It’d be really hard to hold a beer without’em.
