wherein nick's day was made.
The entire event of going to the cell phone store and getting the phone he wanted made him giddy. He was glowing and bouncing and in a hurry to get there. Once there, he immediately chose the phone he wanted that triples as a PDA and an MP3 player, and then we chose the service agreement we wanted. The whole time, I was sitting there, talking to the sales guy, making the big decisions, and nick was just pretty much glowing in the moment. The cutest, best part of the entire experience happened as follows:
So, we’re sitting there at the consul, and the guy is reading us the contract, you know, making sure we knew what we signed up for. He’s going through how many minutes we get per month and how much it costs if we go over. He tells us how much Internet service costs per month and he’s really trying to up-sell us. So, he turns to a capricious Nick and says “So, do you want to send text messages?” To which Nick replies “YEAH!!” and then I kind of chuckled and was like “Hey, honey, that costs more.” To which he replied “Oh, I’m so glad you’re here.” We regretfully declined the text messaging feature and the Internet and anything else they tried to get us to sign away two years of our life on. And we signed the contract and were on our merry way. Nick is now connected and I don’t believe he has stopped looking at his new phone since he first picked it up. I think he’s smitten.
