Tring...Tring..goes my phone

Or cell phone... well, either way, I don't think there's anyone with the traditional "ring" kind of.. ringing. (ringtones ka zamaana hai, even the himesh ones). sic. Whatever, someone is calling you, and it's me! I'm calling you! What a miracle, I'm not a big fan of the phone. I mean, it's cool, it's handy, it's useful, but there's something about it that I'm not 100% completely cool with. I really like to write letters, so I guess that would be my preferred choice for communicating with people, but alas, I'm the only one who likes to write letters, so I'm all alone in this weird world of letter writing. (or whatever you'd call it). Even emails would do in this tech buzzed world, but man, I need to communicate. Pour my heart out through my words.

Any way, where was I? Oh yeah, well, I'm calling you right now, ok? And the reason I'm calling you is because I"m bored. Is that a crime? Nope, not at all. People will call you only when they are free or have something urgent to discuss with you. Not when they are attending lectures, meetings, or may be nature's call. On the contrary, you have the luxury to read letters at your ease. Not like those pesky calls, leave everything at hand and run to attend the tring-ing phone. What, you want me to call when I'm entertained? Of course not. Because the reason for my calling in the first place is for you to entertain me! So, if anything, you should be grateful and lucky and thanking the heavens I thought about you and gave you call... or sent you a text message. Either way, you should be happy. Aint I modest. .........**chuckle**

What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters. You can't reread a phone call. ~Liz Carpenter

Hmmm...letter writing. I still write 5 or 6 page long letters. It's definitely not extinct! As long as there are 'loony toons' like us, this noble art will live on!
