Gotta Get Going…

 

My 3G Life


Streamed on my phone, last night’s ODI ended at one,
No wonder getting up in morning didn’t seem too fun,
But then today’s Monday, and Mom might call me anytime.
And I wouldn’t want her to see me asleep during Facetime.

So I jump out of bed, grabs the day’s gazettes.
Not from the porch, but on my trusty old tablet.
I check my emails, there’s a presentation that needs some fixing.
Boss wants it immediately, I download it and get working.

So before no time, I’ve edited and sent the presentation,
while swinging to my favourite tunes from the internet radio station.
And all this on my tablet and phone, without even opening the laptop.
Which I only use when missus is searching video recipes on mobile for mutton chops.

So the phone gets docked, and becomes a full-fledged music player,
While I get ready for office after a warm, refreshing, shower.
I remember that tune that has been stuck in my head so long,
I hum it to my phone and it searches and finds me the name of the song.

I start to office, and my phone sits on my car’s dashboard,
The ever trusty GPS with detailed maps and my favourite routes stored.
Traffic is mean, but I hardly get in stuck in these streets.
My trusty Traffic App re-routes me using live traffic feeds.

At office work takes precedence, but then there is always room for fun,
A quick, little game, some social networking, gets a lot of things done.
The newly married Ramesh emails his Reception photo from Rome.
Picasa is blocked in office, so I see them in hi-res on the phone.

At lunch, I realize its Kirthi’s birthday tomorrow and I don’t have time,
To buy her a gift, so I order her favourite flowers online.
And during checkout, Boss calls up, wants some information.
I speak to him while continuing the payment, without disconnection.

And when works done, I wrap up for the day and start for home.
I’m reminded there is a party to attend by the missus on the phone.
I pick her up and we reach the place, looking good,
She chats up with her friends, bored, I stick to Facebook.

And then suddenly she remembers that her mobile bill is to be paid,
Though the bills have come down significantly, it was still delayed.
I take out my phone and she looks at it and smiles.
She remembers my banking app and knows I can pay bills on the fly.

On our way back, we stop at a traffic signal just near our street,
She looks at the huge banner of a movie soon to be released.
I know it stars her favorite actor and this she really wants to see.
I book tickets for the opening night right at the signal, instantly.

And thus my regular day, like any other, comes to an end.
There is so much that was done, with so little time to spend.
No science fiction this, all of this can be reality.
Gotta Get Going… My Tata Docomo 3G life is calling for me…

      Thanks Malvika. That’s completely coincidental, I hope. 😛 Unless Vithal Kamat got into my brain and ‘extracted’ this title a la Inception… 😛 Never mind, I’m getting sleepy. 😀 Thanks.
