Grease is the word

I often get asked why I don’t have an iPhone. The answer is quite simple. It doesn’t go with my face.
My face is … well, there is no kind way to say it … it is kind of shiny. The upside is that this means that my skin ages more slowly. Well, whoop-de-do! I will have great skin when I am 80 for the price of being shiny all my life. Right now, that doesn’t feel like much of a deal.
My mum’s typical greeting when she hasn’t seen me for a while is a recommendation for face powder. Obviously, that is right after we have cleared up the fact that I still do my hair “that” way. Sweet lady. Really 🙂
Anywho, I digress …
I have a Blackberry Curve and I like it. The screen is big enough and I like the keyboard. The iPhone has way too much facial real estate. I spend quite a bit of time cleaning the screen of my Blackberry to remove the facial deposits. The iPhone’s screen is twice as big as the Blackberry, therefore requiring twice as much cleaning. Plus the Blackberry looks pretty grim after a phone call. I would need to wring out the iPhone.
So it doesn’t go with my face. And don’t get me started on the virtual keyboard. Face prints and finger prints? Yikes!
