A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

Of being phoneless

Posted by Pepper on November 28, 2010

On Thursday night we went to have dinner at my uncle’s place. He is my dad’s brother. It was a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, mashed potatoes, corn bread, beans, pumpkin pie, etc. Living close to family has some advantages.

Anyway, on Friday afternoon, I needed to make a call and noticed my cell phone was missing. Yes, it took me an entire night and half a day to even notice my phone was missing. That goes to show how exciting my social life is, doesn’t it?

I first thought Mint was playing around and had probably hidden it somewhere. After the previous cell phone saga, I don’t trust him an inch. But after talking to him I crossed out that possibility. That still didn’t bother me and I continued to remain unperturbed. Misplacing things is such a common occurrence in  my life, that it fails to make me even blink an eyelid now. I casually looked around the house. It wasn’t to be seen. So I coolly assumed it must be lying on the floor of the car. I was so sure it would be in the car, since I couldn’t see it anywhere at home that I didn’t even bother to go up to the car and check.

So I stopped searching for it and got busy with other stuff. My lack of concern for my phone, does speak of my arrogance and my ‘take for granted’ attitude. Soon the day turned to night. At around 9 pm I got a call from my cousin. She said I had left my phone behind at their place and said she was surprised I hadn’t called them for so long to check. ‘Ohh, so its with you! I’ve been looking for it all day and searching the entire place!’, I lied.

Why would I want her to know of my uncaring attitude or my non existent social life? So well, the phone is still at their place. We haven’t found time to collect it yet. And doubt we will, until Tuesday evening. Till then, I shall remain phoneless.

      I used to be addicted to my phone when I lived away from Mint. That time it was mainly to talk to him. Now I don’t care 😛 I only want a phone to talk to my parents, for that, I have Mint’s phone.

    I would be like you if I lost my phone…except my parents would panic if they can’t get hold of me. But other than them, there’s not much use of that phone 😛

      Exactly! Now my parents can always get hold of me by calling on Mint’s phone. Get married T! Then your parents needn’t panic when you lose a phone 😛

    I wish I could be like you! I am so uneasy if I can’t find my phone. I think I have my phone with me – all the time! It’s almost a part of me 😦

    I used to love my phone until my little sis snatched my dear Nokia E5 and gave me her ancient-age mobile instead which has no feature at all, not even radio or mp3! And now when I plan to buy a new one, she says she’ll trade that with my older E5 😦
