I'm a "First To Own" for the first time

Okay, I know this is so silly but I'm so excited. A month ago I traded my pretty pink Razor cellphone for a BlackBerry curve. Then my boss got one and I realized how "not girly" my phone was. Well, Thursday they came out with a PINK BlackBerry and I got the first one available from my local Verizon store. I've never been a "first to own" and as a matter of fact, a month after I got my Razor, they stopped selling the model. So, usually I'm the last to own. It's so pretty and cute and just fun to be the first one to own something.

I know this is silly, but it made my weekend that Verizon gave me great service, exchanged my phone even though I was past my 30 days, and were pleasant doing it and I got my BlackBerry in PINK. I feel feminine again. I needed the BlackBerry for work, not I feel like I've got what they wanted me to have AND something pretty.

Like I said, I know this is silly, but it just made me happy.

Sometimes it's the little things that make life fun. Glad you are happy with your new "toy". : )

I don't think that is silly at all! I get happy about the same "silly" kinds of things too!

I'm definitely loving it. I'm actually bummed there are others in the office today because I don't get to use it as much today.
