Dear Ms. Smartphone: I am on holiday and can’t find where to buy postcards or stamps. I promised my Mom I’d send her pretty pictures, but it would be so much easier to use photos in messaging. C.C. Reading
Dear C.C.: You didn’t mention where you are headed, but it does seem like no one sells postcards or stamps anymore. Make sure the phone does not interfere with your vacation. Beyond that, your family and friends might enjoy sharing your adventures in real time. Postcards are bland and predictable…travel reporting does not have to be! You can always bring back some small souvenirs to replace those postcards.
