A Letter to My Blackberry
You and I have been through a lot together. Before you, your sister, the pink Blackberry, was my closest accessory. Together, we've texted thousands of texts, sent photos to friends and loved ones, followed Missouri Tigers games, and kept current with all things Facebook. You have been a tried and true friend.
That's why, what I have to say is so very difficult.
Blackberry, the time has come for us to go our separate ways. Yes, I'm breaking up with you. Oh, how I love your keyboard. You helped this large-thumbed woman create perfectly spelled texts every time. You and I knew each other so well, I didn't have to think when applying punctuation or emoticons. Your short stocky stature matched mine to a T.
BB, it's time. I need to be with my family and they all have the IPhone. I need Instagram to spy, er um, keep up with my daughter's activities. I need to be able to finally play words with friends and that drawing game. Believe me when I say, it's ME, not YOU.
Thank you for your years of loyalty and service, even when others made fun of you. I will always treasure our time together. Enjoy your retirement my little outdated buddy.
