You were so small when I first met you. And even though my flip phone (Flippy) was even smaller, I thought, “how can I ever replace Flippy, with this tiny little i5.” I didn’t need all that fancy internet stuff. And Flippy did texting just fine. But, time moves on and, I’m a little embarrassed, but the teasing from my friends (huh?) and family won over. And so Flippy took it’s place in a little baggy with the cord and a label that said, “Jessica’s, then mom’s, then dads – Still works well.” I still miss Flippy.
I guess over time I got use to i5 (such a cold name). But, the new freedom of Pintrest, and maps, and note taking, and OMG messaging everyone at once – wow – won me over. So i5 became my new companion. We were getting along so well and your small size was, well, just right after all. And I even spent money on a new cover for you. I never even did that for Flippy. But our time was so short lived. We’ve hardily gotten to know each other and along comes the newer, fancier big brother i6-S+. It was such a generous gift, Daniel, but I just didn’t think my heart could ever move on. First Flippy, now i5. How could I dump another phone…. for what? Something better? How shallow and self-centered of me.
So here I am now, i6-s+ is all activated – with it’s larger screen and sooooo much more memory, better camera, and faster processor. I’m sure it’ll take a while before I’m able to accept my new phone friend. Maybe, when my feelings settle I’ll be able to go get a new cover for this one too…….. Probably by tomorrow (everything is closed tonight).
Eulogy to a friend.

This is the best post yet!! 😉 you’re a very compelling writer!! Hold on to Flippy and Nathan can use it in 12 years! Haha!
Lol. Thought I’d go to bed early but, that one just had to be written. Haha. Thanks
You’ll fall in love with it once you can talk on the phone without muting every one!
It was amazing. I had a 10 min. phone conversation today without it muting or going to FaceTime once!!!
