Can you hear me?
I did it! I have traded Fillipa the flip phone for Ippolita the IPhone. The time has come for me to master the smart phone while I'm still smart enough to do so.
Fillipa served me well through the years even though she suffered great neglect. You see, I rarely turned her on unless I needed to make a call or was meeting someone. She was never invited to be on my table in a restaurant. During her years of service, she received only one text message and never sent one.
I'm not yet sure just how much use I will allow Ippolita to be to me. I do know that she will not be allowed on my table at a restaurant.
