One or The Other
Pretty sure we’ve all experienced it. The delightful feeling of waking up from a deep, deserving and delectable slumber, only to look over at the bedside clock and realize you’ve severely overslept. What comes next is a great big HOLY *#@$, followed by a spouting off of every four-letter word in the English language as you enter into a chaotic scramble in order to make it to work at a reasonable hour. With a little bit of luck and some NASCAR-like skills behind the wheel, you make it to work, flop down in your chair, sit back and close your eyes. A deep vape of your favorite Thug Juice from Mt Baker Vapor settles your racing heart. Somewhere, that little voice inside you offers you congratulations for only being 45 minutes late. A smile crosses your face as you bask in your accomplishment…
… and then your eyes SHOOT OPEN!
At once you spring to your feet and start checking your front and back pockets. You check every corner of your desk, scattering papers left and right. You check your purse if you are the kind of human being that carries one. You start whipping open drawer after drawer after drawer, all to no avail. “Where could it be?” you ask yourself as you flop back down in your chair and take another inhale of berries, watermelon and cool menthol vape.
And then in your minds eyes, you see it, resting peacefully right there on the coffee table in your living room.
Yup. You forgot your flippin’ cellphone at home. Major fail, right? Perhaps. Then again, maybe not. After doing a bit of thinking, that little voice taps you on the temple and says, “Hey. Don’t stress. You’re alright. You did good. The most important thing is, you have your mod.”
Nodding to yourself in agreement, you continue vaping your favorite Mt Baker Vapor E juice, not giving a Gosh Darn that the entire office is looking at you like you’re crazy.
With the cellphone and other devices dictating much of our lives, we got to thinking and decided to pose a question to our followers on Facebook.
The question asked: If you had to choose between your cell phone or mod, which would you choose and why?
The responses were both unique and flat out AWESOME. Below are a few that we had to share.
“My phone keeps me connected to family and friends. My mod keeps me connected only to a habit (albeit one that saved me from death by cigarette). I don’t take my laptop when I go sailing… but my phone goes everywhere. My mod can’t capture the beauty I see on the ocean, but my phone can.”
“I’d give up my mod. Talking to my husband is the highlight of my day. I’m pretty sure withdrawal from him is way harder.”
“My phone so I can talk to my son who’s a Senior Chief in the Navy!”
“Nope. Not doing this. Can’t!”
“My mod. No doubt! Bill collectors can’t reach me on my mod!”
“A cellphone mod.”
“Mod. I have a land line plus I rarely use my cell away from home. People can leave a message.”
“Mod any day of the week. I paid $40 for my phone, over $100 for new mods.”
“My mod. Land lines don’t bother me. I am old. J”
“I’d give up my phone. I mean, everything I can do with it, I can do with other devices. I’d rather keep myself not smoking cigs. I used to have a Walkman, did the whole pen pal thing in school, had a corded phone, dial up internet… I ain’t worried. J”
“I HATE being connected to the mother ship 24/7. My mod will win every day, all day.”
How about you blog readers? Which would you choose?
