Fate of the Strawberry Chocolate Phone

Until a few weeks ago, I owned and used (frequently!) Verizon’s Strawberry Chocolate phone. When it first came out, I had to have it– it was pink, cute and only available online. So I bought it. Without really considering professional world– I quickly learned: a bright pink phone gets a lot of looks, especially when working in a field dominated by men (military, former military and union leaders). To say the least, I felt out of place taking my bright pink phone on meetings.

So I ditched it. And I am now the proud owner of a non-pink, silver phone.

I decided, some other girl should have the joy of a pink phone, so I passed it on to Sofie– an adorable 5 year-old that loves tons icing on cookies. She has a sweet tooth, nothin’ wrong with that 🙂 She adopted my Strawberry Chocolate phone.

I received this thank you note the next day– and found out that we share more than a sweet tooth:

Yes– like me– she enjoys taking pictures!

I am elated. I may not be able to carry that cute little phone around anymore, but I know that it is in a happy home.

    OK so I’m glad it has a loving home…but I’m seriously disturbed that it’s a 5 YEAR OLD. What is this world coming to?! I’ve already decided that we will be seriously traumatizing our children and not giving them cell phones until (maybe) they are driving. Or maybe when they buy their first house.

    Oh– yeah I agree with waiting. Just to be a little more clear– the phone isn’t activated for her. She likes it because 1) it’s pink and 2) she can take pictures. So it’s really just a camera to her…
