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.
