Electrical Outlet (September 2011)
One of my co-workers recently got her first smart phone. A reporter for more than 25 years, she had a treasure trove of numbers in her old phone. Getting them transferred to the new phone, a Motorola Droid X2, was not a problem – Champaign Telephone took care of that when the switch was made.
Just stopped off at the Verizon store, and the staff outnumbered the customers. Guess all the chocolate bars are gone.
But on the drive back, I got to thinking on a tangent, as I will sometimes, about the chocolate bars. And Willy Wonka and the original golden tickets.
Remember story problems? I used to love story problems. If Car A leaves Memphis heading north on I-57 at 51 mph and Car B leaves Champaign heading south on I-57 at 54 mph…
… The other drivers will be telling them to get off the road.
