I called Verizon to turn on the 4G service on my iPad yesterday, and instead of the typical anger that comes with a call like that, I felt really cool.
The call rep was explaining that their coverage is far superior to anyone else’s, and how I’m unlikely to be out of range. Well, well, well, sonny boy. Let me tell you where I’m headed, I thought.
I gently explained to him that we would be going from Kent, Ohio to Albuquerque, NM, then North through Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana before heading back to Kent, Ohio. He paused, and said “Isn’t there a mountain bike race that goes that way?”
“Yes”, I exclaimed, “Only we are doing it on dirt bikes”.
“Now I’m really envious”, he said.
And to someone other than my kids, I was cool for a minute!
