re-enacting lear

August 5, 2010

After four long years and a brush with death, I am officially OFF the iPhone bandwagon. Me n the boss came to an understanding, and I’m the proud user of an Android phone.

I am completely lost. Adrift. And wondering what to do with about 2,000 songs so lovingly downloaded from iTunes and which are in the super handy, super portable AAC format.

Anyway. Of course, the real question is, what do I do with my old iPhone? Not a 4, not even a 3GS. Just a 3G. But still.

All three kids want it.

Wait a minute, I’ve just had the most wonderful idea, partly because I just finished listening to the audio book of Fool. (Which, if you can stand the ribaldry, is one of the funniest books I have ever read. Er. Listened to. Whatever. In fact, it’s that funny even if you CAN’T stand the ribaldry. So says I.)

I will do this: I will ask my three children how much they love me. To the child with the best answer, I will leave my old iPhone.

What could possibly go wrong?

    Welcome to the club, you won’t regret it, and although they won’t admit it, all the iphone users will be jealous of your new found freedom.

      I don’t know. My phone does calls and texts. That’s all I need it for. I don’t have facebook or twitter or anything that requires internet in my pocket. I’m either cool, or a luddite. I think luddite.

    I have a great solution. Give it to me. Maybe I can save your life. I love you man!

    I say, give the phone to Nala. That will keep the sibling rivalry to a minimum.

    I am a Luddite. My phone doesn’t even have a camera. It may have voice mail but if it does it’s probably pretty full from 5 years of not being checked.
    I can play Minefield and Blackjack though.
