Today I'm talking phones. And surprises.
I don't have a typical phone. Hubby and I have flip phones, Trac Phones, to be exact. Before you start laughing or pitying us, hahaha, it's okay, it is a deliberate choice. I use $20 worth of minutes every few months, if that...and that's a lot cheaper than the monthly plans associated with Smart Phones.
The stigma attached to my phone does not go unnoticed. Every time I pull it out to use in public, I feel the 'what? is that!?!' look, real or imagined from whomever is in close proximity to me.
My husband is the most frugal man I know. He has never wanted anything other than such a phone. Recently, he floored me, out of the blue, saying maybe we should get iPhones sometime in the future.
That statement surprised me so much (lol!!!) that last night I dreamt I was mailing a letter in one of those big blue mailboxes (which incidentally I haven't done in years) and my Trac Phone fell in. I waited for the mailman to come to give it back to me, and when he pulled it out he laughed and laughed and totally made fun of my phone.
Even in my dreams my phone is a gas.
And the surprise of my husband wanting to upgrade to an iPhone? I'm amazed!!! And I'm torn between resisting (I like how cheap my phone is) or buying him one for Christmas. ;)
