As soon as I find the right name for the service...

Ringular? Nay, too cutesy.
CliffCalls? Nay, too self important.
Itz4U? Too Prince-like.
Clarity Mobile? Hmm...now maybe, just maybe...

Charles Gramlich said...

Clarity mobile certainly has a....ring to it.

You know Charles, people have been put to death for less egregious crimes than that pun you just made (:

God, Cliff. If I wasn't married, I would ditch my cell phone in a second. I have come to hate it. How sweet it used to be to drive through the world knowing that you were alone, that no one could contact you until you ended up at home. Why did we have to have cell phones? Weren't answering machines bad enough?

Clifford said...

Stewart,

I hear you loud and clear...but the cool thing about cell phones is that you can turn them off. And I do. If I talking with someone, having a meal, etc., I NEVER answer my cell phone--unless I think it's an emergency (i.e., multiple calls in a short period of time). They can wait. And they do.

So just because I've got my cell phone with me doesn't mean you'll be able to catch me! On the other hand, when I need it, I love the convenience.

Oh wow, you guys have reminded me that I need to charge mine in case my wife calls, though I can't hear the ring on mine, let alone someone speaking to me on it.

Clifford said...

Sidney,

Get a new phone. Really. Your wife will thank you for it! And if you ever get lost while geocaching for instance, you can call for help!

Sidney said...

Good idea, Cliff. I'll use that info when I plead my case for an iPhone.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
