The screen on my phone with Qwerty keyboard went blank and so I went and got a new one.
“Don’t try to sell me a new plan or a smart phone. I want that flip phone right over there.”
Lucky for me, we were able to get my contacts off an even older phone onto the new flip phone.
“Thanks for not trying to sell me stuff.”
“You knew what you wanted and I wasn’t about to try to.”
Out and about since then, people have commented on my new flip phone:
“Good for you.”
“I miss those days.”
“It doesn’t have anything to do with nostalgia or hipness. I simply don’t want a computer in my pocket.”
“Tell me about it.”
“Okay, I will. I have a computer at home and one at the office. That’s enough for me. Nothing else to tell.”
