Laptops, iphones, and the luxury of technology

I’m writing this post on my laptop. It’s actually a Dell notebook, one of those cool half pint sized laptops. My husband bought this for me for our 10th anniversary. I didn’t tell him at the time, but I thought it was extravagant. We’re simple folk–what do I need a fancy shmancy laptop for?

THEN, Dh got an Iphone. Zoo-wee momma did we have a talk about that. No warning, he just went out and bought it. Because he wanted it, and because the newer models are coming out which makes the old models cheaper. Whatever! We already had 2 perfectly functional cellphones, which I always thought was sort of a luxury already. Nobody really needs two cellphones, and nobody needs an iphone. I mean, there is such a thing as too much technology, right?
