Let Me Introduce You

to my new phone.


Her name is Delilah. Because she's a temptress. And, she knows my weakness. We met a few days ago on the internet while I was 'just looking'.  She spoke to me.


"Hello, Jewels. I am your new phone."

Oh, no, I don't need a new phone. I'm just looking.


"Well, look a little closer. See how pretty I am? I'm white and new."

Yes, but my old phone works fine.


"But, it doesn't have all the technology that I have. I'm a 4G. G is for gorgeous.  With me you could check facebook and email. And you can check your blog for comments any time of day."

Um..that's ok. I'll just keep this one.


"Really, Jewels. You know you want me. I have a touch screen. You want to touch my screen, don't you?"

Yes, yes I do.  But, what about my old phone?


"Give it to the Handy Man.  He'll love having your cast-offs."

But my old phone is pink.


"Oh, he won't care. Take another look.  I have a camera and music, you can listen to music.  Come on Jewels.  Just one click."

I don't know.....

When she arrived today, I was making dinner. It took all the willpower I own  (which isn't much) not to holler, "Cereal for dinner!" and run to my room for some girl-time. Even her box was cute.
One of the reasons I gave in was because I have 14 days to return her if I choose. The Handy Man thinks this is what's going to happen. I've thought about it, but Delilah is trying to convince me otherwise.

"You want me. You need me. You aren't letting me go."

She's right, of course. Dang temptress.

  5. Ah, the start of a beautiful relationship. My niece was all excited about some new app the other day and I said, "That's only for smart phones, right? Because I have a very dumb phone."
