So today I bit the bullet.
Jumped on the bandwagon as it were.
I called up the Apple store in town to find out if they had the iPhone I was interested in stock. I went there straight from work to make sure I could get my hands on one of these fancy little units.
For the record, I am most definitely a PC, in many senses of the term. Apart from being a bit of a technological geek where running gadgets are concerned that is about the extent of it. It took me years to figure out how to text. I only have a flat screen TV because a guy that I was dating wanted a new one so he gave his old flat screen to me. I really didn’t see much point in a “smart phone.” But today I was ready to bite the bullet.
The Apple store is an interesting place. It has its own kind of subculture. Everyone working there is wearing either cargo shorts or plaid shorts. There are the folks wearing orange shirts that are kind of like a concierge. Give them your name and get on a waiting list. When your name moves to the top of the list an Apple shopping specialist wearing an aqua t-shirt will be introduced to you. Then there are the folks wearing dark blue shirts who I never quite figured out who they were. Personal shoppers to help with previously made appointments?
As I sat around and waited for my own personal shopper my stomach was in knots. Hopefully they really would have enough iPhones in the back so that I could get one. I probably should have packed a snack…I didn’t realize it was going to be quite so busy! An hour and a half after checking in I left the store with my snazzy new iPhone tucked safely in my purse. Sweet! Now I just have to figure out how to use it…
To bring things slightly back on topic…1-1/2 hour bike done on Thursday, 2300 m swim done today…120K ride on tap for tomorrow! Have a great weekend all!
