The iPhone X is finally here! Ok, I acquiesce it was here last Friday the 3rd. Importantly, My iPhone X arrived today. While my Iphone 6 has served me well lasting well over 3.5 years, it is nearly ancient in phone terms and starting to show its age. As excited as I have been about my new phone, my boys have been even more excited. They were both dancing with glee when they saw it had arrived today.
Consequently, the I received a call from the Mayor as I was drove up the turnpike. The Mayor isn’t one to wait around for answers, so I was not surprised at all by this. He and Goalielocks were fighting over who was going to get to open my phone. The Mayor was busy pleading his case as Goalielocks was shouting he called it in the background. Sensing his brother’s annoyance level rising, the Mayor proceeded to thank me for letting him open it. Naturally, this made Goalielocks go ballistic. Meanwhile, I’m telling the Mayor to stop saying these things that are clearly untrue. I was finally able to get a word in edgewise and disappoint them both with the news that neither would open it. Instead I would wait for them both to leave for hockey practice before I would open it myself.
After seeing pictures of shattered phones, I opened my new phone gingerly. I started setting it up before my Barre class. Honestly, I’m proud of myself for putting down the Iphone X and heading to Xtend Barre. It was seriously tempting to stay home to setup and play around with the phone. Nevertheless, I exercised some discipline and headed to the Barre. As usual, Adam kicked our butts in new and inventive ways. I’m sure my legs, abs and arms will be screaming tomorrow.
I activated the phone and finished the setup operations between sauteing the chicken and cooking rice. The first thing the boys wanted to see once they boys got home from practice was my new phone. As soon as they got in the door, they rushed over to see the new phone. Namely, they wanted to see what it looks like and how it works compared to their phones. I played around with some of the camera features, which pepper this blog. I cannot wait to try out the camera tomorrow. There are features that I still haven’t tried like the emoji maker, but I’ll have plenty for that. It will take me awhile to get accustomed to the X as it is quite different from the 6. Nonetheless, I’m quite excited for my new toy.
Tonight’s song – love it – is an awesome flashback to the 90’s with Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta.” I heard this song on the radio today as I drove and it brought me back to the 90s.
