Houston, we have a problem ...


I am in love with the color pink. My watch that I run with every day is ... pink. My Nike running shoes have pink swooshes on them. My iPod is ... pink. I am currently wearing a pink sweater. My toenails are painted pink. Pink is the color of the new bed sheets I bought today for my extra-long mattress. I will one day own pink luggage. I am in love with the color pink.

Today, I did something I have dreamed of doing for nine months: I bought a pink cell phone. AND! I hate it. 

Why? Because I hate change as much as I love the color pink. I agree with Meg Ryan's character 113% in "You've Got Mail" when she says, "People are always telling me that change is good. But all that means is something you didn't want to happen has happened." 

And what exactly has happened?

I have come up with three things on this earth that I am good at, really good at: leg-wrestling, parallel parking, and texting. And you know what? This new phone has taken one of my talents away from me. It has made me a novice texter and I loathe that. I do not want to be, "Mindy, the stalwart leg-wrestler, phenomenal parallel parker ... and the neophyte {not to be confused with Nephite} texter."

How dare you, pink cell phone, change the way I text?

This leaves us {with "us" being defined as: me} in a conundrum. I am so bothered by the different texting format that I am strongly considering taking the pink cell phone back tomorrow morning so I can simply return to my old friend, and text the way I have always texted and continue being the three-talented person I am.

I guess it all comes down to this simple question: which is stronger - my love for the color pink or my hatred for change {and for your golden star achieving convenience, I have made this question the poll question of the week, to be found in the right hand column of this blog} ? ... Only time will tell, only time will tell ... sigh. 

P.S. If any of you lose sleep and/or sob uncontrollably over this terrible misfortune of mine, I will give you two additional golden stars. :) Naturally, photographic documentation of either event will be required, with all rights and permission given to Mindy to use that photo on her blog. Please send all photographic documentations to runaholic@gmail.com ... Thank you and have a nice day, unless you day was already in a class much higher than merely "nice," in which case by all means stay at your currently exuberant day status.

LOL!!!! You make me laugh so hard! I'm sure you will be fine! My advice as an Aggie: Meet the Challenge (Thankyou Mike Hamby :) ) If you need someone to practice texting ...I have the next 6 days off!

I say suck it up and get faster on your new phone. No just kidding who am I to talk I really hate change and I am awful at texting. But this did make me laugh.

I am sitting here reading this in my PINK pajamas... watching 27 Dresses, which came in a PINK dvd case... and using my BLACK laptop (cheaper than the pink one) and looking at my BLACK cell phone... in the end, text-ability won over my love of all things PINK... I also wanted a pink phone, but couldn't stand the texting function (but I have added a pink Mickey Mouse charm to it). So there's my 2 cents!

I may be a little slow answering here but, I think you should keep the phone and develop and NEW texting talent... It may not be easy. But I know you can do it!!

Matt and Avree said...

I think you should write a column for a magazine or newspaper, where do you come up with this stuff?

Brandon and Erica said...

I voted right!! Golden star for me!!

I was going off of my own hatred for change. I understand that feeling.

MINDY!! HA ha! Hello! Can I just say that I miss you? I hope you are doing so well. I think of you every time that I hear the Copa Cabana (which is really quite often). I have some new moves my friend. Good luck with the pink cell.
