Dear Santa (I mean At&T):
I have been a very, very, very good girl all year long. I make my bed every day, eat my fruits and vegetables, meet most of my work deadlines, and am nice to everyone (including all 5000 women at Blogher).
You see I am writing now in September rather than December because all I really want for Christmas, I mean the Jewish New Year, is a new iPhone 5. All my blogging friends are pre-ordering one today. They are tweeting, facebooking, and instagraming about it, and frankly, I want to do that, too, but you keep saying that I have to wait until Christmas Day for an upgrade.
What’s a nice, Jewish girl to do? I don’t have a tree to open up presents by on Christmas Day so how am I going to get my iPhone 5 upgrade? Not to mention – all the stores are closed on Christmas Day, so I cannot even go out and get one before my Chinese Dinner.
I don’t even feel the need to go into detail about the fact that I was an original early-adopter who broke their cel contract with that other carrier (starts with a V) for the very first iPhone. Nor do I feel the urge to belabor the sacrifice I made when I did not upgrade to the 4S with Siri because I was waiting for the iPhone 5. Now, every blogger on the block, I mean in the country, is going to have an iPhone 5 and I am not.
Cool Mom Tech said it is a must, and I really need to listen to them because they know their stuff. They do.
Even my dental hygienist already ordered hers….No fair.
I mean – I don’t just want the phone to take panoramic photos of my kids or Facetime my adorable baby cousin, I have important work and connecting to do with it….and, I am going to be so left out of the group. I already feel like an outcast with my iPhone 4. It is practically obsolete. It might as well be as old-fashioned as the big phones of the 1980’s.
Please, AT&T Santa, if you are real, send me an early, early upgrade for the iPhone 5 this Rosh Hoshana, and I will not ask for anything else. This way, I will have my panoramic camera to take pictures of the Christmas Lights when we go to see them in December.
Hugs and Cookies Forever,
