Clearing the Cell Phone

When I got my new cell phone, I ordered the data cable so I could sync that bad larry up. Sure it already has a keyboard in it, but I have fat fingers, easier to run that there USB cable and fire away.

However …

I didn’t realise at the time I did it that I was syncing with the outlook profile that has all the contacts in it. The one with all of mine, all of Kin-Girl’s, and all of the contacts Kin-Mom has collected for the past 30 years. I was sick of searching endlessly past entries like, Pool guy from 5 years ago, and Cabinet makers from 1984, so to waste some time in traffic, I started deleting unwanted entries. I got really good at it, look at name, want it? No – look at road, with thumb, left key, left key, up arrow, left key, left key. Repeat. I must have deleted a good 250 plus contacts on 128. What was really freaky though?

How many times I actually said, “don’t need that one, they dead now.” More than thrice I said that. Kinda weirded me out.

  1. I likeitalot. Miracles should have looked this way for the past ten years, showing his inner demons on the outside.

  2. I like how you said “they dead now”, as opposed to the grammatically correct “they’re dead now”. It has so much more meaning.

  3. i still have my grandmother ’s number in my cellphone, even though she died last may. i can’t stand the thought of taking it out.

  4. It’s a tough call when to do something like that. You’ll know when it’s right.
