Hi, my name is Kathy and I’m a technoholic. I never thought I would have to admit this. Thought I could keep it hidden from the rest of the world, but the truth has finally hit me. I’ve decided to come clean and bring everything out in the open.
I grew up in a time when technology was just getting off the ground. I went through vinyl records, 45’s, 8 tracks, cassettes and CDs. Every new phase brought a new kind of excitement. My youth was spent in front of a console radio that expelled a green light upon which I focused and became hypnotized as I listened to Inner Sanctum and the Shadow. Howdy Doody was my after school friend as I raced home to watch his antics on our brand new 13 inch television. Each year became a new adventure as my addiction to technology festered. I couldn’t get enough of it.
When I entered my teens, I felt proud because I had the only portable radio to take to the beach. Later that would turn into a boom box. Eventually it would be replaced with other devices. When the internet was born, I thought I had reached the peak. Everything was there instantly. No need for a Thesaurus or Dictionary. It was right there. Time passed and came the Ipad, Smart Phone and Smart TV. I can’t imagine it getting any better than this, but there’s always a need for more, isn’t there.
I never thought I would be replacing personal communication with texting, but it was the final step. I now realize that I’ve run the gamut and nothing will ever satisfy the desire for more technology. I’m ready to quit. But I can’t, I have to write my blog for today!!
