I just noticed a random poll about this online – and Bryan and I just talked about it the other day. Somebody wants me to think about this issue.
Do you still have a land line?
A phone plugged into the wall rather than into your hand?
We do. We have held on to it for several silly and not-so-silly reasons… for years after other friends have gone 100% mobile.
First, we like our phone number. This is the silliest reason of them all, but we got the number when we moved to Denver 18 years ago, and I am kinda attached to it.
But more importantly – Declan is 9, and as yet does not have his own cell phone. We haven’t made any decisions, but we are thinking middle school will be when we crumble – when he riding public transit on a regular basis. But for now, he only plays on our hand-me-down iPhones and has no connection.
So, the phone here at the house is more of a back-up emergency plan sort of thing.
Or are we just being… silly?
