A Cell Phone With Whipped Cream And A Cherry On Top

Yesterday we went shopping for new smart phones because everyone else has them and we certainly don’t want to be left out.

My current cell phone was just fine doing what it was supposed to do which is take calls but now days that isn’t enough, oh no, now they have to play music, videos and make us a sandwich.

The young man who looked like he was about fourteen showed me several different phones that did all sorts of things including talk to you. I guess if I get lonely I can strike up a conversation with my phone.

He talked to me about frozen yogurt, gingerbread and ice cream. Oddly enough I was hungry after leaving his store.

“So your cell phones have frozen yogurt, gingerbread or ice cream but you don’t sell any of those items for human consumption?”

“No ma’am.”

“Okay, well you are in China town can I at least get an egg roll?”

“We don’t sell those either.”

They really shouldn’t talk about all that food if they aren’t going to at least offer you a complimentary cookie, it’s the least they could do since they charge you a fortune for a small device that fits in your pocket.

Any day now my phone will update to the Ice Cream, I didn’t have the heart to tell him I’m lactose intolerant.

He gave me his business card in case I had any questions. I did. I bet he is wishing he never gave me that card.

I got a HTC Sensation phone and I told him that reminded me of INXS’s song New Sensation. He just looked at me with a blank look. He clamed to be a big music buff but never heard of INXS.

So as well as being hungry I had that song going through my head. In case you’ve been living under the same rock as my new friend Van here’s INXS.
