For a while there, I was getting really awful reception on my cell phone. In the kitchen, I got a great signal. Move to my office, though, and I may have well have been on the moon.
I soon became obsessed with checking my bars and trying to figure out exactly where and under what conditions my calls got dropped. What if I stood this way? What if I opened the window?
The blue sweater! It must be the blue sweater!!
And then one day it hit me that those little bars looked a lot like a sales graph (goodness knows I love a good sales graph!) and the above cartoon was born.
So I guess something good came out of it – but I’d still like to be able to call my friends from my office.
