The time has come. This has been quite hard on me since I’m descended from my Dad – the world’s most extreme gadgeteer but I don’t have a cell phone. Until now.

Actually, we decided that Erin was old enough that life would be more convenient for us if she had one and I insisted on having one too. I just can’t stand it any more – all that gadgety coolness out there with voice, camera, speakerphone, and text messaging all rolled into one. Erin and I ordered ours last Sunday night. Now we’re waiting very impatiently for our new phones.

Evan and Mel upgraded theirs and got them almost immediately.
