Clinton is asleep as I publish this. And I can’t be bothered to wake him – I’m like a cat with catnip unboxing my new shiny toy. Clinton doesn’t have one.
THE STAGE IS MINE!
I woke up excited. The shiny toy was coming today. And after a number of false starts due to Friday being refuse pickup day in my ‘hood, (the garbage trucks kept giving me false hopes, ok?) I settled into my day.
TechDad spent a good portion of the afternoon teasing me.
“Did you hear something?! I think I heard something! What was that – is that a truck? Maybe you should go check. What if they can’t find our house? Or what if they just drive right by?”
I ignored him. (Well, to be honest, when he left for his run I told him to see if he could go find the delivery truck and herd it our way.)
My case arrived first, via the USPS. I pre-ordered a Spigen Neo-Hybrid because it would arrive today. I just don’t trust myself without a case.
Finally the glorious moment arrived.
My doorbell rang, sounding like the bells of St. Paul’s. Like one of Pavlov’s dogs, I raced to the door, salivating at the bell.
There was a brief kerfuffle as my actual dogs also charged the door and the FedEx delivery guy dropped our packages on the porch and hurriedly darted back down my driveway.
“Do you need me to sign anything?” I called after him.
“No,” he waved me off as he fled back to his truck. “You’re fine.”
“Santa’s in a hurry to deliver 4 million of these little boxes,” I informed TechDad.
“You didn’t hug him, did you?” replied TechDad with mock concern.
I didn’t have time to get my feelings hurt, though. It was time to set up the new shiny toy!
And with a satisfying suck of air, my new iPhone 6 was unboxed.
As of right now, AT&T is still thinking about switching the account between phones. So I shall share my thoughts on actually using Activating Beauty over here come next week’s TechMom Tuesday.
