Today is the birthday of my number one side chick, le lover, who happens to be my wife’s best friend since her secondary school days. I know that some of you are trying to digest what sort of arrangement that is. Good luck to you. But the catch is that it is in wife’s best interests that she accommodates our love relationship. We are probably (hopefully) the two most important people in her life (yes; hopefully). Why would she wanna face off against us both? See? Anyway, this blog post is not about that. Like I said, today is le lover’s birthday, and wife came into the room chatting tapping away on her BlackBerry. She announced to me that she was chatting with my sweetheart and I responded asking her to say Hi for me. One thing led to the other, and wife handed me her BlackBerry so I could take the conversation to the next level without an intermediary.
Don’t ask me about what le lover and I exchanged. It isn’t your business. Your business is how this suddenly made me want a Blackberry Q10. It is simple, really – that superb hardware QWERTY! Typing a few messages on wife’s BlackBerry felt so good – I mean soooo good – that I immediately began to long for a hardware QWERTY keyboard again. Actually, it woke up my love for BlackBerry again. Of course, if I am getting a BlackBerry, there is no point getting anything other than an OS 10 device. There are only two OS 10 smartphones in existence, the touchscreen Z10 and the hardware QWERTY equipped Q10. You know my choice. QWERTY all the way!!!!! Nothing beats a hardware QWERTY keyboard. Nothing.
So, here I am longing for a BlackBerry Q10, but my broke ass self is looking at that price tag and wondering what BlackBerry was thinking. I want a BlackBerry Q10, but that’s just as well. After all, I also want a nuclear submarine, a mansion in Beverly Hills, and a Swiss Bank account. If I can’t have any of these or the BlackBerry Q10, at least I still have the wife and le lover who triggered off this sudden silly desire. Thank you.
