I had a really weird dream last night.
Everyone I knew was getting the brand new super-hyped cell phone. It was all the media was talking about. I felt I had to switch just because everyone else was. Everyone had this phone and said it was the greatest thing ever. But at no point did I actually see one. I never saw anyone using one, never saw an actual picture, nothing.
So I bought one. It had to be activated before I opened the box, I would have to switch carriers and port my number over (something I just did in real life), so there would be no going back (easily at least).
I bit the bullet, opened the box, and inside was a whoopee-cushion with an ancient Nokia candybar phone inside it.
And then I noticed all the people walking around with whoopee-cushions held up to their heads.
