Hola Family, Friends and those I haven’t met yet
For years I’ve used a basic, no-frills, super simple, old skool, 2G flip phone. No internet, no GPS, no-high tech nothin’. (Farley’s probably laughing at me now.) I can fold it up, slip it into my pocket, and no butt dials. I’ve dropped it multiple times and the screen is not a spider’s web of cracks. I could probably even throw the phone at a mugger’s head, run away, and leave him with a big bump on his head.
Well, today that’s all gonna change.
My sister’s been slowly pushing me in the direction to “get with the times” and “level up.” A few of my friends have also made similar suggestions. I do like taking photos, and making videos are fun, too. I learned the hard way last year that when your car breaks down on the side of the road, AAA will send you links to open up on your phone — but I am unable to open up links on my flip phone. I also have to keep telling everyone to send stuff –pictures and videos– to my email and not my phone.
It did take longer to send text messages. And if I took new pictures or videos then I had to keep deleting the old ones because the flip phone’s memory could only keep about 70 pictures and about 7 short clips. And the battery was constantly quickly draining.
And it’s good to try something new. And it opens a whole new world of stuff I can do with my cartoons.
Here’s to progress.
Have a great Wednesday everyone.
Until mañana. . .
Bring on the Spiders!
