Fateful Technology - 55




Technology was her friend,
always there when she needed it,
 helping her to keep in contact with clients and friends:
 Facebook; eBuddy; Blogger; the entire world wide web at her finger tips.
Her life was complete
until technology turned on her.
Crushed by a cell phone tower when a single faulty bolt sealed her fate.

Janna said...

The sad part is she didn't even have time to Tweet about it....

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Autumnforest said...

Oh dear. So what does one do without the Internet? Meet her neighbors? That's more scary than strangers online.

RNSANE said...

What a way to go. I've always been a bit afraid of technology!

Belinda Munoz said...

And some might say it was only fitting. Thanks to this fabulous 55, I won't be walking anywhere near any tech towers from now on.

the walking man said...

At least she died doing something she loved.

MorningAJ said...

That's a bit too close for comfort!

Woke up this morning to large bits of tree dropping off next to my front door - blown across from the churchyard.

If the computers don't get you the timber just might. ;)

Is that irony, or just iron-y?
Nice 55, Double-M!

autumnraven said...

Can't help but laugh.

Mama Zen said...

Ouch! Was it an AT&T tower? They've been killing me for years.

Alice Audrey said...

LOL. Yeah, that's ironic.

Margaret Bednar said...

Ah yes, when the "power" takes over.... LOL ...kind of like the zomies? Or will they be working together?

anthonynorth said...

Loved the irony.

Enchanted Oak said...

I love these moments of foresight. Or hindsight. Or whatever this form of cruelty is, sightwise.
Free advice coming out of the woodwork!

Mister Sharaf said...

a fateful day --- someone once said "I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by mediocre"
