Too Old To Learn

This afternoon I finally went to the Sprint store to get Whit a new phone. Hers has been broken throughout the holidays and I have been putting it off for the past few weeks because I just didn't feel like dealing with it. Today was the day to just get it done.

You all need to realize that I have never had a cell phone of my own. I have a phone provided to me at work which is paid for by them. It is a cheap flip phone with no camera, no texting, no internet, no free minutes, no nothing. I am only supposed to use it for work related stuff which you all know isn't really what happens. Every once in a while, my boss threatens to take it away because I really don't need a work phone. In my eyes, this is a fringe benefit for me. I just keep ignoring him and keep using it anyways.

For the last year or so, the middle daughter has been riding me like a pack mule to get a phone and get to texting. I have had absolutely no desire to text and have tried a couple of times and I realized that I suck at it anyways so why bother. She has even gotten so snippy about it that if I need her to text her little sister at school or something, she throws a tantrum and tells me no. Sometimes this really pisses me off and I'm sure she knows it.

Today ... I took the big leap. I got my very own cell phone with all the bells and whistles. I don't have that Mac Daddy of phones, but one with a keyboard, touch screen, bells, texting, internet, and best of all ... Facebook at a touch of the finger. I live on FB and now I can just hit the button and there it is. I have been looking at all kinds of things for the last couple of hours and I am already thinking I'm going to like it.

Texting will not be the easiest because I have fat fingers, but I'm willing to give it a go. To all my friends and family who already text like 100 words per minute: Be patient with me. I'm on the band wagon but still holding on to the rails.


  1. Look at you go Amavive! I love having my FB at the touch of a finger, one of the best features of a smart phone as far as I'm concerned.

    I need you to change the bag background now because I can't see the words very good hiding over there on the left.


  2. Welcome to the 21st CENTURY!!! Yes... This would be the middle child speaking and it's about damn time!!


Comments...I love them long time.
