Lovely Wife Was Threatened!

Lovely Wife had a birthday a few days ago, and is now the next best thing to being 50. (Yes, I married an older woman)

Number Two Daughter told Lovely Wife that she couldn't wait until Lovely Wife turns 50.

"Why?" Lovely Wife asked.

"So I can get you a Jitterbug!"

For those of you who don't know, or are otherwise totally out of touch, a Jitterbug is a huge cell phone with massive numbers on the buttons, targeted at older folks who might appreciate having a cell phone they can see the buttons and numbers on rather than a "cool" cell phone.

The young whipper-snapper generation all think the TV commercial for the Jitterbug is a hoot, and that it's for OLD people.

So, apparrently Lovely Wife has only one more year to indulge in her Blackberry addiction with it's full QWERTY keyboard.

I guess it's mandatory for those 50 and up to switch to a Jitterbug.

I personally think it would be more difficult to get someone off of heroin addiction than to wean someone off of their precious Blackberry.

Wow, if she's switching to a jitterbug (Great name for the over 50 crowd, by the way) then maybe you guys should also consider that little button one wears around the neck to alert medical help in case of an accident.

(Help, I'm texting and I can't get up.)

Well, happy birthday to wifey.

LOL I'm not even 40 and my daughter says that is the only phone that I should ever own. She says I can't handle anything more than "yes, no and numbers." She is mostly right, though.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I did almost all of my shopping on Amazon and didn't miss the stores one bit.
