Cell Phone Break Down

In honor of our six month anniversary - which happened on that nether-day between February 28th and March 1st - I present this re-enactment of an conversation L and I had only a few months into our relationship. L was jokingly testing me and seeing if I had memorized her cell phone number yet. As the only number I've been able to remember since the advent of cell phones and PDAs seems to be my own, I was not quite prepared for this question.

L: Do you know my phone number?

Me: Sure I do.

L: So what is it?

Me: Uh, it's nine one seven, uh, eight five three, uh, something.

L: You don't know it, do you?

Me: I don't have to. It's stored in my cell phone under "L cell."

L: What if you lose your cell phone?

Me: Then I'd look in my Palm Pilot. It's stored in there.

L: And what if you lose your Palm Pilot?

Me: Easy. All the information is backed up on my computer at home.

L: Okay. What if there's a massive power failure resulting in a total breakdown of modern technology?

Me: Well, then I guess I wouldn't be able to call anyone, would I?

I think you've just written a new playlet for Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.

You could have said, "Well, then I guess I would have to wait for you to call me for once!" Do you think you would be married now had you said that? All of those technologies failing at once, sounds like Armageddon.
