My new phone. The Samsung S8 in orchid something.

There was that feeling that my would be pried from my cold dead hand, then I saw the Samsung S8 Plus commercial. It only took one time seeing the Samsung S8 filming a shark to make my eyes wander.  Let me repeat that, a man in a shark cage recording a shark! It filled my little photographer heart with joy. Who wouldn’t want to be filming inside a shark cage? While being swept up in the excitement of a water proof phone, my husband pointed out that 1. When we were in the Bahamas I was nervous about snorkeling. Sharks would make things a lot scarier. 2. It was a shark, they bite. 3. Sharks, bite. He didn’t mention 4. which would be, that based on my past experiences if  a shark cage failed it would be me inside and the shark would bite me and swallow my new phone. 

I wonder if my phone insurance would cover sharks.  

The Samsung S2 survived soooo many toilet dunks! It was going to be my cellphone forever. My Samsung S2 is now our car camera. It might be the best phone I have ever owned. It connects to the house wiflies and becomes a palm sized tablet. 

It turns out that I didn’t have to give up my Samsung S6 Edge Plus either.  We were entitled to another line.  I love T-Mobile. Kelsey spent most of her day explaining every option available to us and answered endless questions, even stupid questions, knowledgeably and with kindness. We go to the T-Mobile store in the Mt. Shasta Mall in Redding, CA. She is one of those co-workers that every company wants! Even about importing the home phone number to the S6.

It has been impossible for me to give up the house phone. We rarely use it but it has been our home number for probably 20 years. Giving it up meant the loss of the phones in our home! If you are in the bedroom, your cellphone will always ring in the family room. We found out you can go to and buy an interface that allows you to use a cellphone with your house phones. I am keeping my beloved and connecting it to the house with the .

I hope the Samsung S8 lives up to my expectations and that I am never bitten by a shark. (I know what you are thinking, a shark bite scar would be kind of awesome. It really would. Especially if I was visiting my dear friends at indie gaming studio Primordial Echo which is in AUSTRALIA! Visit Australia AND a shark bite scar my son would be soooo jealous. *insert evil laugh*)
