March 10, 1876 the first words were transmitted via electric waves. In other words, it was the first telephone convo. Alexander Graham Bell spoke, “Watson, come here; I want you” and Watson heard the call. A momentous occasion for sure and yet I chuckle. Seriously. Of all the things he could have said; yet he chose to go with “Watson, come here; I want you.”
Kinda reminds me of the time my mom went to call in a prescription. The Pharmacist answered the phone with, “Such-n-Such Pharmacy, can I hold you?!”
But I digress …
So let’s take a bit of time to be thankful for that great invention of Alexander Graham Bell–for all the serious and not-so-serious words it has conveyed. For all the ways it has brought us together in joy and sorrow–in hilarity too!
