"Whew, I thought a band of gypsies had kidnapped you. Of course, you probably would have loved that, wouldn't ya?" ~ Ellen
I had never really considered it, but I gotta tell ya that is now going straight to the top of my Christmas wishlist. Half because I want to be kidnapped by a band of gypsies and half BECAUSE I WANT TO BE KIDNAPPED BY A BAND OF GYPSIES.
My cell phone died a couple of weeks ago. And by died I mean I probably hit it with a hammer, because that is what 1 dead battery dropped call too many will do to a person who is on what she thinks is her death bed.
It was time to upgrade anyway, mostly because I spend an equal amount of time away from my computer as I do on it these days. What I didn't realize is that the procurement of a Smartphone would 1) make me feel like a complete dumbass and 2) intrude on interaction with people who are in the same room...nay, sitting on the same couch.
Thanksgiving day I found myself surrounded by family while biting my tongue to stop a barrage of profanity over those stupid stupid Angry Birds. I decided to take a break from playing before my head exploded and when I looked around the room I realized every other person over the age of having been born was also typing away on his/her Android/Iphone. I wanted desperately to record a video of such excellent quality time with loved ones, but if you'll see #1 above you will understand why instead of watching said video you are reading about it.
This is an excerpt from an actual conversation I had over the weekend:
B: I didn't realize what I didn't realize.
Me. I realize that.
(Try not to be jealous of the brilliance.)
