A good man always knows his limitations

When I was younger I always wondered what it would be like to live in another time. I'm not sure if it was all the John Wayne & Clint Eastwood western movie, but I was always day-dreaming about living in the Wild Wild West.


Living in the 1800's
horses & stage coaches
cowboys & Indians
No malls, no cars, no cell phones.
Nothing in my life resembles that. at. all.
This is me when I forget my cell phone at home on accident:


I am cut off from the world for an hour and I have nothing to do with my hands. Oh the horror to sit at a red-light & not check my Facebook!
Kat from Mama's Losin' It prompted us to talk about what 'vice' we could not live without. . 
I could live without Facebook if I wanted to.
I could go without a cell phone if I had to.
Heck, I don't even need to check my email every 30 minutes. 
Oh, who am I kidding....Just the thought of giving up Social Media makes my  hands sweat and my heart race in fear.

  1. Love this post! It made me laugh. I too, have always wanted to live in the 1800's or the 1920's (who wouldn't love to wear those flapper dresses and date a man in a zoot suit?) or the 1940's. But the 1800's would be my first pick if I was given the choice. The simplicity of it is what draws me to it. I know it was a lot of hard work but you didn't have all these distractions of cell phone, texts, emails. I love all of those but it would be neat to see how long I could go without it all...

  2. My daughter's Lit class is on a 4 day "social media fast"....I said that had better not include texts to and from parents!

  3. I went with coffee... I can and have survived without my cell phone... I didn't like it, but I can do it!
