Lots of great things happening this week. And just a nice productive day. Possibly a Linda award thrown in. Possibly not though, since I still have a couple loads of laundry to fold and no immediate dinner plans. Hmm. Feeling the award slipping through my fingers. Better get busy.
But first. We’ll talk about the least exciting thing.
We went to Best Buy. Again. (The first time it was closed). Goal: buy an iphone. And if you’re wondering why I’d go to Best Buy to buy a phone, I was the lucky recipient of some gift cards.
So. We walk in. And I’m immediately overwhelmed with feelings of consumerism and materialism and despising keeping up with the rat race of technology and the coolness of iphones. I have no idea why I’m like this.
But I do know that when you have a jewel such as mine…
You don’t have to worry in the least bit about looking like you’re trying to keep up with the latest and greatest. But if I succumb and get the latest and greatest, in two years when the iphone 6 comes out, people will say, ‘Oh what model do you have?’ ‘The 4s.’ ‘Ohh….’
Why do I spend such time thinking about these things?
Moving on. Those are the things running through my head as I walk around Best Buy. We talk to a sales person, ask him what phone he has. He shamefully responds with, ‘Oh, I just have an old droid.’
See? Thats exactly what I’m talking about. So I whip my phone out, and am like, ‘Buddy, you think you have an old phone?’ And he laughs. But that’s it. You can have pride about an archaic phone. No pride in old smart phones.
Moving on again. I ask if I can see a white iphone. And he gives me a brand spanking new one. And I hold it. And am like wow. That is sure purty. Dang. Beautiful in fact. (Cheaper by the Dozen white typewriter. Listen to the book!) Gosh. Wesley is grinning and nodding.
And we’re like. Ok, sounds great, let’s do it. Only to be told that Verizon is down everywhere. Another sign?
My white iphone is sitting at the store. Wonder if it’ll ever be mine?
But I think it will. And that’s exciting.
And another picture to end on.
