Ann- What is that 7 Keto stuff and r u calling me fat?
Me- No dummy. I started taking it because it is good for immune function and anti aging. It can just also cause weight loss.
Ann- Cool fatso.
Me- I’m taking it so I can keep lying about my age since it’s for anti aging.
Ann- Where did you get it old hag?
Me- Health food store.
Ann- I am going to get some so I am a skinny 23 year old.
Me- You can always try. I think at this point I’d settle for DOING a 23 year old.
Ann- U lie like a rug. An old rug.
Ann- So what’s that stuff called again?
Me- 7 keto.
Me- It has given me more energy. You know, for that 23 year old…
Me- I know. The 23 year olds are practically lining up. Wait. That didn’t sound right..
Ann- I want to see that.
The last time I wrote about texting I was talking about how some of my texts look like they are from someone crazy or at the very least, illiterate. That’s because I should always have my glasses on when attempting to use a phone. Which brings me to my current complaint. Why is it that cell phone are getting so tiny?
Mine came with a little stylus, which is just about the right size for a very small person. And by small what I really mean is a dwarf. Or a midget. I get confused about which ones have the proportionate extremities. Although I think that we are supposed to call all of them little people now. Which brings me back to very small people again and that is a little ambiguous if you ask me.
I don’t have an unusually small cell phone and I do have fairly small hands for someone of a normal stature. My friend Dave, on the other hand, (pardon the pun) has hands the size of a baseball mitt and fingers that mostly resemble bratwurst. I would think that he could accidentally be calling Finland on occasion.
Other than the size of the tiny little keyboard I also object to the tiny little screen, with it’s tiny little fonts. I have been wondering if it is possible to enlarge the font so I can read it more easily. Then I realized that is exactly why they make those Jitterbug phones for old people. According to the web site:
The powerful speaker has a familiar dial tone just like your phone at homeNotice that 'powerful speaker' is code for this phone is not only great if you have trouble seeing but it'll work if you're deaf, too!
I had to look it up to find a picture to post here and had some trouble finding it initially. Because I thought it was called a June bug. Then I realized that no one would want to buy something that buzzed and was called a June bug. At least I wouldn’t.
Anyway the Jitterbug has great big toddler-friendly (or old people-friendly) buttons and a large display. The only real problem that I can see is having to lug around a phone the size of a shoebox.
