How it feels when you get a new phone
Every moment is a selfie opportunity
‘Oh we’re taking a picture? Use my phone. Why yes, it is new. Thanks for noticing. Isn’t it awesome?’
You will take every opportunity to take out your phone and show it off to a bunch of people. It’s the highlight of your month.
You refuse to take off the protective cover
I’m not talking about the new protective cover, I’m talking about the one that comes in its original packaging. You hold on to the new phone feeling until further notice or until the cover itself starts disintegrating.
You make sure its fully protected
You can’t get a scratch on it. So you have all the skins and covers ready. If you had the option, you would swaddle it like an actual baby. You can never be too careful.
You feel like a whole new person
‘New Phone, Who dis?’
You didn’t just get a new phone, you got a new personality. You walk with a little more swag, a little more attitude and you swear people are looking at you differently.
Your heart beats quicker when someone wants to take a look at it
You’re torn between wanting to show it off to as many people as possible and giving your baby to someone else to look at. Every second its in someone else’s hand is a terrifying ordeal. They won’t treat it with the same love and care that you do.
You spend hours setting it up from scratch
Facebook, Snapchat, Google, Contacts, etc. There’s a whole lot your new baby needs to learn and you’re willing to put in the time and effort. For a few days, it demands all your attention until it can stand on its own two feet.
