Throwback to that time in 2003 when one of my mother's omata customers wanted to chop very fresh fruit. I'm even more offended now than I was then, that 17 year old me was being wooed with persistent doggedness by a 40something man.
What is wrong with you men?😒
So when I got into 1st year he bought me a phone that was certain to scatter my dada and land me in his bed; spread-eagled, offering him my flower on a platter of ..... Whatever.
Seriously, What Ever.
I'd long dreamt of having my own mobile phone for, like, forever. I mean, some of my classmates in QC already had cellphones while we were still in school and I'd gotten into Uni and still couldn't boast of one yet. I wanted nothing more than a phone.
But WHATEVER. Lord I hated this Xelibri phone. It didn't only look like an egg, it felt like an egg; fragile af! It was meant to be cute but came off looking like a failed experiment, and in turn made me look like a "forcing guy" aka "I must to join" aka wanna-be. 🙈
Angus, our poor customer couldn't believe that his ace card only garnered more bristling resentment from me to him.
Meanwhile my then-boyfriend had a Samsung blue-eye, and then a true-eye (or true i?) For the youngens, back then a Sansung blue/true-eye was tantamount to an IPhone 7! It was the coolest thing ever 😂😂
I once came home for the holidays and saw my former childhood friend who was still about 15 at the time, with a Motorolla Razr and I immediately had one of those "where was my father when her father was making money?" moments. I mean, guys, was there anything slicker than the Motorolla Razr back then? Nope.
It's funny when we think about it now, but then phones were no joke. They were a symbol of status and pedigree. I mean, guys, can you remember all those Nokia phones? Jeez!
It was the fastest way to spot a "successful" runs girl in my Uni back then. If a chic used a Nokia N95 then you could tell that her Aristos were big league. LOL.
That up there was my first phone, I didn't use it for long but I can't remember my second, third or fourth.
But you know what they say, you never forget your first. 😉
So what was your first? Do you remember the year? How you got it? How long you used it? Is there any story behind it? Lets #throwback to our #firsts; phones.
