It's all about the ring tone

At the beginning of last month, I became eligible to get a new cell phone with a pretty hefty discount. Darrell and I went to Best Buy (the BEST place to get a cell phone) and I picked out a Palm Treo.

It is a smart phone. Perhaps too smart. Like no-fun-smart. I tried to download a fun ring tone, but couldn't. You see, the Palm Treo is a serious phone. Not a fun phone. I was really disappointed.

But, then I remembered Best Buy has a 30-day satisfaction guarantee policy.

So I went to Best Buy (on election day, so I wouldn't have to watch the incessant TV coverage) and traded it in for an Instinct.

It, too, is a smart phone. But the fun-kind of smart. Even its picture makes it look fun! I now have the Charlie's Angels theme song as my general ring tone. And the Casino Royale James Bond theme song dedicated to Darrell.

Yep. It's all about the ring tone.

Oh la la! I like the new phone. I could have told you the first one would have been a snooze. I mean, look at it!

I think the real reason I got the first one is that it cost more. I didn't want Darrell to have a more expensive phone than me. But I think Darrell secretly (or not so secretly) wishes he had mine!
