A four year relationship.
With my smartphone.
It was like giving up an appendage.
Or cable TV.
But I exaggerate, really. It wasn't hard and I rarely notice a difference. Sure I can't immediately post my thoughts on the economy or the importance of grapefruit to Facebook. And I can't catch up on celebrity gossip while I wait for my coffee at Coffee Planet. But I wouldn't consider any of that enriching, anyway.
What is, you ask?
Saving $30 a month...it's en-riching!
See what I did there?
No data plan on my phone bill also frees up several minutes in which I can spend actually communicating with those around me.
Like the girls at Coffee Planet:
"Um, are the bagels good here?"
And even the dog:
"Stop licking that."
The only downside is that I have this ridiculous looking phone.
The Pantech Jest 2; it's the size of the palm of my hand and takes excellent pictures if I do not intend for them to be seen.
That's how I would prefer to be enriched, anyway. Who needs hand-held access to junk mail when you can have coral skinny jeans?
A question we should all be asking ourselves...
