After my Rip Van Winkle experience last Friday where I fell asleep instead of going to the Post office to pick up a VIP (very important parcel ) I finally got there Monday after spending a torturous weekend having something so excitingly close but inaccessible. I didn't take any chances on Monday. I went before work instead. I thought it unlikely I'd accidentally fall asleep at 9 am.
And my parcel was there !Oh Happy Day!
And when I opened the box this is what was inside.
This is what I've been using for the last 5 years. It makes and receives calls and occasionally lets you send a text. Except that the buttons are so small and close together that if you have fat little fingers (like me ) your text often ended up reading like it was sent in a language other than English . Example: "I will meet you at the shops"often looked like "I woll mert yot at tge shpps" . I rarely texted because it was a complete waste of time. Nobody knew what I was trying to say anyway.
This week I joined the legions of people who have a phone that wasn't made when tin cans and string were all the rage for communication. And since I've already become proficient in swiping and poking screens because of my Ipad I didn't have to go and get a degree in technology before I made my first call. And when someone calls me birds chirp. So freaking cute !
I have the internet on there and everything! In fact I have lots of everythings on there I have no idea how to use.
But I'm going to have fun playing with it all. Assuming my smart phone isn't evil and isn't plotting to take over the world the second I touch the "start countdown sequence" button.
So this little pile of technology has been my favourite thing this week. What about you? Any favourites to share?
