I had no expectations whatsoever from this air-message-monster.
Quite the opposite: I knew it would take days, weeks perhaps, for a hand-written letter (remember those?) to make the same journey, so one hour seemed a reasonable amount of time to wait by comparison.
Not so today. We live in the age of hyper-connectivity, so being denied access even for a few minutes is enough to get the blood boiling. Time is precious.
I had planned to spend a couple of hours this morning replying to your comments and visiting some of my favourite blogs to read and comment – no such luck. Every time I try to open a window I get an error message and that dreaded “Connection lost” follows.
If through some miracle this post makes it to your screens, then I can only guess that it managed to sneak its way through a momentary window, when the fire-breathing-internet-dragon was looking the other way.
I no longer have to imagine what being stranded on an desert island would feel like — this must be it!
