are you my mother?

today i read a story about a toddler who calls his dad's iPhone "mama." i thought it was sort of charming and endearing and completely relatable.

and then i wondered what was wrong with me.

seriously, though, i probably love my iPhone almost as much as i love my mom and dad (almost) and i definitely love it more than i love some other people i know.

so what? am i setting myself up to my a slave to technology and a victim of the eventual apocalypse that is sure to come when all our smart gadgets turn against us? (because they are so much smarter than us.)


but in the meantime i will never be lost or bad at scrabble or behind on celebrity gossip. so it seems like a good trade-off to me.

The real question is not whether you love your iPhone (you obviously do), but whether it loves you back. If not and, given that it is an inanimate object, it cannot), then you should reevaluate your relationship.

Hahaha I love it! I completely relate as well. My girls know how to do things on my iPhone that I don't :)
Soooo does scrabble mean you play words with friends??? I know you'll kill me....but you up for a game??
