My cell phone is dying a slow death. I don’t know what’s wrong with it. The battery won’t hold a charge for more than about 24 hours now even if I don’t use it at all. Since it’s much less expensive to replace a phone than it is to replace a battery, I smell a new phone in my future. And really, what does that fact say about our universe?
So since I need a new phone I mentioned to Tom that I was thinking of switching providers to one that offers GMS phones that work in Canada. We will be in Canada quite a bit this summer, and now that the Canadian Grand Prix is on again (woo hoo!) we will be there for one weekend every summer for the foreseeable future.
I currently have a bottom-of-the-line phone and a prepaid calling plan because I don’t use my phone that much. When I mentioned my quest for a new phone to Tom he just so happened to mention that the iPhone has become quite reasonably priced. Dammit. I covet the iPhone. I have had my eye on that baby since they first came out. But I do not need an iPhone. I am going to say it again to remind myself: I do not need an iPhone, I do not need an iPhone, I do not need an iPhone. But now that Tom has planted that seed in my head I know it’s only a matter of time. I hate that I am such a gadget junkie.
After we had this conversation I suspected he might have an ulterior motive. Initially I thought he was offering me an iPhone because he wants an iPad. But I was wrong. It turns out that he wants and Iphone and apparently there is some kind of special deal on a pair of iPhones right now. Ah Hah! Busted.
But I do not need an iPhone. I just need to keep reminding myself.
