Long before the rest of the population was hooked up to technology,
Seizure Mama was wired.
My first two technology tumors were a beeper and bag phone.
For you young people, a bag phone back then weighed about thirteen pounds.
It was the size of an encyclopedia.
If there was an emergency with Rose,
the beeper went off with the number of the person who called.
I would unzip my “encyclopedia” and call them back.
I carried this phone in a giant purse or backpack everywhere I went.
When I want to whine about having to wear a little pack with my phone in it now,
all I have to do is think back to the beeper and bag phone days.
That shuts Mama right up.
