All I Want for Christmas is an iPhone 5

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,

    I love this and I feel your pain. At BlogHer I was the loser with the 3G iPhone with no flash so I couldn’t get great pics of Katie Couric at the lunch, etc. After complaining to my hubby ad naseum I will be getting the new iPhone this month for my birthday.

    Hope you get your upgrade! Every nice Jewish girl deserves one!
