I wonder what would happen if we have an option for a "factory reset" when our bodies fail, but only if we can choose our age. You can go back to an age of your choice, however you lose everything that you have accumulated after that age, including all relationships. Think about that.
Talking about factory reset, my phone had a glitch today and reset itself. I lost everything: my calendar, all my contacts, my paid applications, my voicemails... the emotional upheaval is amazing when the technology upon which you depend, fails. I could not remember my children's, sisters' and brothers' phone numbers. I could not remember my best friend's number. I only remembered my husband's number. I called my mobile carrier and the representative told me to take my phone to a service center. I became irritated and demanded some sort of resolution during my call. The data is lost but my phone is working. I think I will start writing on my little black Moleskine notebook again.
I also heard the life story of the phone representative. Seriously.
Today was my annual evaluation as a lead clinical analyst. I am very happy.
***I just made up that name. My friends and I never knew his real name. He was called by his kyphotic deformity - "Buktot" meaning hunchback, a nickname his family and friends and himself acknowledged, which is why I never spoke to him because I was embarrased to call him "Buktot." My parents never allowed us to call other people by their deformity even though their families do so. I was a little girl and too timid to ask a much older boy for his name.
Update: 10/5/2012 - I know what caused the "factory reset". An application I had for about a year and a half now "unmounted" and deleted my SD card after an automatic update. Ugh! I cannot find any article on this app causing problems but I read about other apps causing the same. I also opened the battery case and just made sure the SD card was not loose. If this app game unmounts and deletes my SD card again, I may have to uninstall it and play it on the laptop instead. I may have to go to a service center to be sure.
