No really connected to my horrifying common cold adventure, just today this weird thing happened which I felt I had to share though surely no one would believe it.
Anyway, just this day I was woken up on an ungoldy hour, so early in the morning my smartphone refused to show the time. On the phone was this driver of a load of bricks I had to receive (No kidding. Really a load of bricks.). So he asked me where to deliver the bricks and I gave him the address.
No, he told me. How do you reach it? Do you turn right or left from Main Street.
Just put the address in your GPS, I tell him, somewhat naively.
I don't have a GPS, he tells me.
So, I ended up having to explain to him how to turn right on Main Street, left at the traffic lights, then after a quarter mile take the left lane ... I didn't do this in something like ten or twenty years.
So, I had to share this experience. There still are some people out there without smartphones or even GPS, even people who drive shipments for their livelihood. Amazing.
As I said, it is not really connected to science fiction or fantasy, except when thinking of the concept of the survival of the dinosaurs to this day ...
