Last week, my dad broke his five-year-old flip phone and then requested the exact same phone. 'Unfortunately', the model wasn't available anymore so we had to order him the upgraded version... It's another flip phone, but I'm pretty sure it's made for geriatrics that are on the edge of crossing over. There is a 911 button AND an ICE button on the phone surface. And the numbers are huge. My dad, of course, loves it.
This week, my dad wanted to meet a friend in NJ and asked for the address. His friend suggested he "just text him the address." Instead of arguing that this was a bad idea (like he usually does), he accepted and then immediately handed the phone to me to ask if he could text. This was a life changing moment for me. I never thought the day would come. It was only five years ago that I taught my father how to double-click.
