For the last year or so, S has been trying to convince me to get an iPhone. Scratch that. He's been itching to buy me one. But you see, I refuse. I don't want it. The thought of not having a tactile keyboard does not work for me. Never mind that the darn thing doesn't even register my finger half the time. I *press* things and I tell you, NOTHING. HAPPENS.
S says it's cause I'm "not human". Sometimes he softens the blow and blames it on my "dead skin". Frankly, I'm not quite sure which of his theories paint me in a better light, so I just blame the phone.
How do I know I detest this phone when I haven't even given it a chance, you ask.
I borrowed it for the day a few months back. But only because I had left my cell phone at home. And the thought of not being able to communicate with
people people that I like for a full 8-12 hours was not an option. So he set up my email on his phone to keep me connected. Between me not knowing how hit the right keys and iPhone's auto complete, I was hopeless...
instead of "DimSum" I got "dumdum" NOT okay.
instead of "drolly" I got "frilly"..."dolly" I could understand. But frilly? Um ok.
Luckily, I double checked before hitting send but making the corrections...brutal.
intelligent caveman like I must've looked typing hacking away with one finger. Brows furrowed, lips contorted mouthing the words as I went along and practically breaking a sweat trying to put together a 5 liner. Hard to feel pleased with yourself when 5 sentences takes 14 mintues to type. I mean come on, it's not like I've got flippers. I've been told my fingers are slender and dainty. I don't see why they're not compatible with the iPhone when S' grubby little paws just dance away on that thing.
Did I mention that when I answered the phone I hung up on my best friend's husband?
Once because I pressed the wrong *button*.
And a second time while he was on the line and my cheek pressed against the phone.
Did I mention he was calling to let me know why my BFF was in the ER?
Can you say panic and frustration.
Thankfully, I figured out how to call him back and everything turned out fine with my girl. Side Note: I headed over to the hospital to keep her company while she sat waiting in the ER.
But I can't have a cell phone disconnect a call simply because the *buttons* can't be pressed. Or because my chipmunk cheeks press
slightly against its surface. So it won't take my fingers but it'll take my cheeks??? Am I the only one that thinks that is stoooo-pad?
I'm married to man who LOVES gadgets. But seriously, I'm not quick to embrace them. I don't need shiny and new
all the time as long as I've got something that works. So me say "yes" to an iPhone? iPhon't think so. I didn't even want a Blackberry when he got me one. Of course I love it now but that's besides the point.
fell in love with the leather insets of this thrifted vintage fur
love the fun lining of this coat

Have I mentioned I don't even own an iPod?
Though I do know how to use one. I just don't need it.
At this rate, perhaps S isn't so far off when he says I'll be like one of those old people who refuse to learn how to use a computer. But seriously, just like they do, I'm sure I'll get by.
