Keeping in Touch

I didn’t realize how much of our lives is “instant” until today, when I hadn’t checked my email in two days.

A friend died.

Another friend’s dad had a stroke.

And my SAT Blogger Challenge scores hadn’t gotten in and I didn’t know it.

I feel like I should check my mail every hour and never check my mail again. I wouldn’t have checked it when I did, except the friend with the dad called and asked if I’d gotten the email. She talked for two minutes, while her husband was in the bathroom. He didn’t want her on the phone. (Ouch.)
