Ok, that was unexpected
I was just IM’ing with friends and cleaning up the house when my brother called. It was the usual hi/how ya doing and then he asked about the iPhone, if I got one (no), why I didn’t get one (cost/coverage), and we talked about it for a bit.
Then he asks, “So do you want one?” And I said of course I do. Turns out he’s going to get a nice sum of money from an insurance settlement for a recent motorcycle accident, and he’s thinking of buying himself one and buying me one. His reasoning: he’ll get free family iPhone tech support for life… and he’s absolutely right!
Now I don’t know if this will actually happen, and I did tell him regardless to wait a while before buying, but how cool is that?! I told him that only he could turn getting knocked on his ass into an opportunity. So while I won’t hold my breath, I may actually be getting an iPhone… and it will remove the burden of him having to (forget to) buy me birthday and xmas gifts for a few years. 😀
