talking on broken glass

I'm an iPhone fanatic.  Make that an iPhone{aholic}.  Anyone that has one ... is.  I seriously wonder how I ever lived without it.  I mean, what did I used to do with my one & a-half minutes at a stop light?  Did I seriously just sit there without being 'connected' in some way?

I bought an iPhone the minute they were first released.  Then I upgraded to the 16GB when it was released {I do gots a lotta photos you know!}.  And then ... I was smack dab in the middle of the 3G fiasco a few weeks back.  But ohhhhh ... it was SO worth it!  Ain't it grand?

So ... a little tip for you ... the new phones are slippery little suckers!  I've never used a case on mine, I think they take away from the look of the phone {yeah, I guess I'm an iPhone snob}.  And let me tell you, I dropped my previous phone plenty and it never looked like this ...

But the other day, miss teenager had to jinx me and ask if I've dropped my new one yet.  As I answered, "no," I knew she had just jinxed me ... big time!  The next day, I find myself at the entrance of the grocery store {3 little girls in tow}, trying to stay out of an elderly lady's way, while trying to get a grocery cart.  Oh yeah, and the little girls are whining to me about wanting the 'car' cart ... when my phone rings.  I answer it {said teenager on the line, not liking my answer 'no' to having a friend over}, put it on my shoulder and do the ol' hold the phone between my shoulder and ear trick.

As I'm in the middle of a 'discussion' with Taylor ... the slippery little thing falls and hits the ground face down!  Oh man!  I pick it up {girls still whining for the car, craziness still in the entrance of the grocery store while more people are lined up behind us trying to get a cart and get on with it!}.  So, I pick it up to see that it's shattered.  Shattered!  But working.  Totally working.  I carefully slide it on, as there are shards of glass ... yes, glass ... coming out of the phone.  Can you believe that?  I would think there should be some sort of safety regulation on that?!?

The best part {dripping with sarcasm}?  I was able to get my phone 'repaired' for only $250.00.  The repair was actually a swap for a new phone {$300.00} ... so I saved $50.00.

It was a sucky grocery trip ... I'm ordering Peapod next time!
