Isn't technology wonderful?

Flashback to 2004.... I had just gotten promoted to Concessions Manager at Qwest Field for Aramark. All of a sudden my grasp had exceeded my reach and I was in over my head a little. One day my boss asked me why he couldn't reach me when he tried to call me after work one day. To which I replied, "because I wasn't home." He was almost speechless and he demanded I get a phone the next day, which the company would pay for. Score one for procrastination!!!

Soon after I had it, I realized I was a fool for not having one sooner. I don't know how I operated without one before that day.

Fast forward to 2 days ago. Our cell phone contract was expiring and I was in need of a new phone since mine was pretty tattered. Initially I just wanted anything that's free. But with my powerful skills of procrastination and lack of decision making, Amy suggested the new I-Phone 3G. It cost $100 and it does 1,000X more than my first computer, a Commodore 64 (yes that's right 64 whopping K of memory). Right now I'm totally lost when trying to use most of it's functions, but I'm sure I'll be wondering how I lived without soon enough.

One thing is for sure, I don't know how I lived without Amy before we found each other.
