I just got a white Blackberry Curve. There, I said it. I had a black one that broke earlier this month and through the insurance I was able to get a new phone of the same model. The only problem is that they did not have any of the black one left, since it was the only color people want.
I got to choose between pink and white. Mistakingly I chose white. If I had picked pink I could have blamed the company, traded with Nikki, or just said it was a statement of my confidence as a man. Instead, I have the white phone and suddenly feel obligated to wear white rimmed sunglasses, white belts and skinny jeans. (If you can picture me in that look I would ask you not to.)
I think the phone has changed me. I used to have no fear in pulling out my phone to check an email, now I'm nervous. I would talk on the phone in public before, now I sit in the back of my van by the tinted windows. I want a t shirt made that says "I didn't pick the phone." Of course, since the phone looks so trendy I would want it in a nice cut and made from recycled cotton. Maybe a t shirt that used to be an old tire that they turned into the most comfortable t shirt ever for only $249.99.
So next time you see me, ask me to see my phone. When I show you don't laugh. I'm pretty fragile and might cry. There is a sale at the mall I have to get to now. Have a good day.
