Technology Troubles

What do you call a person who kills gadgets? You know how some people have a 'black-thumb' for plants? I wasn't sure that was a valid word either, but it is. I checked. If you haven't been to urbandictionary.com before, do check it out. It's a delightful site.

But I digress.. like I was saying, I am that person for gadgets. The Shiva of gadgets, as it were.

One laptop, three cameras, an MP3 player, a desktop and countless countless phones have met a silent end over the last few years. I'm not even counting things like headphones and remotes. Oh and some time back I blew up the microwave by trying to boil an egg in it.

I am ably assisted by my bachchas, of course. Anything that I miss, they demolish with elan. The latest victim of my anti-technology rampage was my phone, yet again. I was in despair thinking I'd be saddled with The Husband's age old stand by, which is a bit of a tragedy. Like my sister puts it... It's just a phone.. no mail, no music, no browser. What's more, every few hours it feels overworked hangs itself.

The Husband, as always, came to my rescue, turning generous when I least expect him to, and got me a new phone. A pink phone, to Naisha's complete delight. And just as I was gushing out my thank yous he said, "Now don't expect anything for your birthday." A Husband can't change his spots.

What was even better Naisha made me a phone holder..

It had to be pink to match my phone
and she demonstrates how it's to be carried.
