My New Cell Phone

My new low-tech cell phone frightens me. It is a black box of deep mysteries--and it is disposable.

1. It photographed me without my volition. I heard a (simulated) shutter sound, then I shuddered.

2. It talked to me without me asking it a question. More disturbingly, I answered back.

3. Strange indecipherable things appear on the screen for no apparent reason.

4. It took me a week to figure out how to...answer it.

I wish I had been born in 1940.
