My Blackberry and Me

My Blackberry and Me

 

I have had a blackberry for 15 plus years. Everyone I know got iPhones or androids. Not me. I am loyal. I need that key board. I can't live without it. I have a stash of Blackberry Curves I bought on eBay just in case. People on the bus look at me and smile. I love my blackberry. I was comforted that my brother and my best friend have blackberries too. I was not the only holdout.

From time to time, I did wander into an Apple store just to look. Sometimes I went to an AT&T store and sometimes Verizon. I talked to people there. I pretended that I was convinced. I wasn't. This went on for years. I knew the day would come, but I was not ready. I could wait.

And then, Thanksgiving. My brother has an iPhone and he didn't even tell me! He said that after a month he couldn't understand why he hadn't switched long ago. I am destroyed. Devastated. The time has obviously come.

I am fully committed to getting an iPhone--tomorrow.
