The Reason We Have Cell Phones

So, I can remember when we had party line telephones, then standard private land lines, then cordless telephones that still had to be lodged on a landline but the receiver could be carried throughout the house, into early cell phones about the size of a freaking shoebox, into the teeny-tiny cell phones that were so cool and so small when Mulder whipped his out on X-Files, and now into the large-ish square flat boxes we carry in our pockets so that we can connect with anyone anyplace.

And today, I finally realized the entire evolution and what it’s all about:  My phone rang while I was in the bathroom having a particularly long and satisfying piss, and I answered the phone while streaming, and had the privilege of saying “Sorry, you must have the wrong number”.
