And Now For Something Completely Different

I have something like, I don't know... six blog posts in the works (one involves my EXTREME RAGE concerning the Fifty Shades of Crap Trilogy), but they all need tweaking.  Until then, I wanted to share something very special.

This is my dad's cell phone:

This is his cell phone in the year 2013.  

It has a sweet plastic/fabric cover, and the display reads, "MARK."  I laugh my ass off every time that I see it, however...  When it rings as we're sitting at the coffee house after seeing Les Miserables (and I look like I've been crying for two hours straight because I HAVE BEEN), and everyone turns to see a phone that doesn't have the capability to be placed on vibrate?  Well, then it's a little embarrassing   

But, "It still works!" and "I only use it to call you, your mother, and your brother!  Why get a new one?"

I love him.

Came here from DCBlogs. My grandfather had the same one for years with the cover too. He liked it since the buttons and microphone are big.

anon - I think that my dad would like any phone as long as it wasn't too expensive... :)

That makes me feel better about my non-smartphone that I'm always being teased about. When I recently took my flip phone to the Verizon store to get an "upgrade," the salesman laughed at me.
