Recently I was standing in Target, livid because my phone was taking a whole 30 seconds to take and send the above photo. Our friends back in Louisiana needed to know immediately that our neighborhood Target sold this pastry. It's a long story. Anyway, I was pissed.

But then it hit me that not so long ago -- in my relatively short lifetime, in fact -- if I wanted to send someone a picture of something, I would not only have to wind up my disposable camera and not only have to hold down that button and listen to the high pitched whine as the flash warmed up and not only drive to my local 1 hour photo and wait one hour for my pictures (doubles, please!) to be developed... but then I would have to put the picture in the mail and wait 2-4 days for it to be delivered. Was I really getting angry because my phone was so slow that it couldn't do this same task in less than 20 seconds? 

That really puts things in perspective, right?

My new lease on life lasted about 15 seconds, until I noticed that my f@!#king picture still hadn't sent. The moral of this story is that I need a new iPhone. 

I hope you learned something here today.
