A Modern Man

Yes, believe it or not, like I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, I just got my first smart phone. But hey, I admit it, I have been kind of stubborn about the whole thing. I didn’t get a cell phone at all until 2008. That was SUPER stubborn, but I will admit it did make for some interesting (yet repetitive) conversations. I think the jump from land line to cell was a much bigger jump than going from flip to smart though.

The main reason I waited to long to get a smart phone is the monthly expense. $100 a month just sounded insane to me for a phone. Although at this point, it’s really more of a computer that happens to make phone calls, but regardless, that’s a lot of money over time. But now there are all these smaller companies popping up charging way less, so here I am. WOOOO I can use Shazam to recognize songs on the radio! Also, my phone makes an excellent flashlight. Okay, I do admit, I love the camera.

PS Boot cut jeans. Man, I mean, I wear slim fit ones but still, I guess that look is just dead now. I bought a pair a while back and had to return them because there was a tiny snag with the zipper, and when I came back, Levi’s had removed the entire boot cut section. That was when I asked the guy behind the counter if I was a dinosaur. He laughed – but he didn’t say no. Damn it. Crazy kids.
