The cottage wifi was down for three days.
It was like living in pioneer times…except I had heat, running water, electricity and a Chihuahua.
I rediscovered reading, finishing The Catcher in the Rye and How to Walk in High Heels and getting about a third of the way through A Widow for One Year.
I realized how fortunate I am to have grown up in a pre-web world. I don’t know if I’d have been such a book worm if I’d had the allure of the net calling to me as a kid. If I hadn’t gotten into books, I probably wouldn’t have majored in English lit, and I certainly wouldn’t have been nerdy enough to name my first dog Zelda.
I also realized that I never want to go three days without wifi again.
