I am technologically impaired.
Oh sure, I write a blog.
Music shaped who I am this very day and yet I don't own an iPod.
(But I have tons of vinyl in the attic!)
I am really behind the times as far as the newest, most advanced tools of the trade go.
In fact, every two years when our cell phone plan is up for renewal I tend to roll my eyes when the husband suggests an upgrade.
To be completely honest with you, I sometimes wish I didn't have a cell phone...
Wasn't life more simple without anyone and everyone being able to get a hold of you at any moment in time?
When I started my new job in April, I realized how archaic and behind the times I am.
I sat in meetings while my peers Blackberried to their little hearts content and each day see my desk littered with my managers internet accessible phones.
When questions arise, the answers are swiftly googled.
If I tell someone I write a blog, they look it up right then and there.
All while I hold my little flip phone "Chocolate" in shame.
During the summer I told my husband that I would need an upgrade this time around.
My boss communicates through email daily.
And I have no clue what is going on until I get home from work.
Still, I have been in no hurry to run out and actually upgrade.
At our Halloween party, my raucous brother teased me about my impairment.
"They don't even make your dumb phone anymore!" he taunted.
My girlfriend says in constant astonishment,
"You have almost 100 employees! How can you not at least have a Blackberry!?"
I have no answers.
This weekend the husband suggested we look at some other cell phone providers.
Perhaps it was time to switch.
Well friends, we went to At&t and I looked at the iPhone 4.
It was love at first touch.
I have already spent about $30 at iTunes.
I plan to pillage and plunder my son and husbands iPods for more music.
In fact, I sit here now typing away, ear phones on listening to my new toy.
More internet access than the salesgirl says I can possibly use?
And she's off....
