100 Word Short Story – Signal Strength Excellent

Signal Strength Excellent


You know that saying ‘Old habits die hard’? It’s true. I was only ninety two when I died. Dad used to say when I was younger, ‘Let me know when you get where you’re going’. He wanted to know I was safe. It became an obsession with me and my family so I was delighted to receive my first mobile phone. It meant I could text when I got back from the shops. It was just good sense.

Arrived safely.
