One of the main reasons I started this blog was to keep myself accountable, to have a world I opened up to, a world I didn’t want to let down.
Two nights ago, I was staring and the warm glow of my phone whilst sitting up in bed. The clock beside me truculently ticked in tandem with the countdown on an eBay item. As the seconds fell away, I eagerly waited to swoop in and outbid a fellow bargain hunter at the last moments, to leave the digital auction house a winner. But it wasn’t a bargain I was seeking. It was a new piece of awesomeness in the form of a new smartphone. Top of the range. Top of the pricing bracket. £400 was the amount I was willing bid to own this handheld device that would bring oh so much joy to my life.
I watched the clock. 60 seconds to go, I can’t wait to use it for all types of stuff. Tick. Like, erm, music and messaging. Tock. Like the same as the mobile phone I have now. Tick. Will I have to put this on my blog. Tock. I will, and everyone will see that I’m weak and helpless. Tick. I’m not buying it, how could I have been so stupid. Tock.
Phone down, book out. Relax.
So thank you World Wild Web, for having my back. Your work here is complete.
(Well not yet, you will have to be there countless times again)
