You were old by Technorati standards, but to me you were but a child.
The years we spent together were exciting and full of discovery. I learned things from you and I filled you with information. You were my lifeline during a very difficult time. The “unlimited text” feature was indispensible in communicating with others, having a very noisy and demanding child.
I held onto you for as long as I could; resisting all the advances by sleeker, more advanced models and ignoring Peer Pressure. You were all I needed. But eventually, my needs outgrew your ability to keep up. I tried to resize you, make you bigger, faster, stronger. But I could see we were growing apart.
Now, I have a new phone that requires a “micro SIM”. It’s bigger, faster and stronger despite its diminutiveness. She has so many more functions that I am yet to discover. Her capacity is mind-boggling. I am unrestricted. I am unbounded.
I am truly “mobile”.
Thank you for our years together. I will never forget how I laughed and cried over you; how your white, sleek exterior remained immaculate.
It’s not me – it’s you.
p.s. I think you will find new life with my 10 year old son. He has been coveting you for a while now. Steadily circling, waiting for me to dump you. I think you should go with him. He will make you happy.
