My iPhone must be on the fritz. That’s the only possible explanation for the following:
•The ToolMaster dislikes video games and tablet computers. They are a sign of rampant consumerism and pander to society’s need for instant gratification. Therefore, when Molly attended a Christmas work party and won a Lenova Thinkpad that she planned to sell, he wouldn’t have bought it for cash.
•He dislikes ebooks. He can’t understand why man would replace a reliable analog technology with one vulnerable to hackers and disruption of the electrical grid. Therefore, he wouldn’t have been gleeful as he downloaded Einstein’s Theory of Relativity from the vantage point of a Kindle app at 11:30 p.m.
•He most certainly wouldn’t have played the preloaded version of Angry Birds. Nor would he have fallen in love.
•For my part, I’ve been scoffing for months about our local bookstore’s transformation. Chapters has forgotten its primary mission. It’s become a toy and housewares shop which happens to contain books.
•Therefore, when I took Frank to stock up on reading material this afternoon, I wouldn’t possibly have purchased this guy…
That’s not him in our kitchen leaning against the bread board, posing for a photo.
Therefore, though it pains me to break my word about never spending another penny on a communication device ever, my iPhone must be malfunctioning and requires urgent replacement.
Good thing we O’Haras are steadfast creatures.
