Welcome to the 21st Century, Sipper



Well, we're gonna do it! We're getting a mobile phone.

A very nice opportunity has presented itself through my brother and sister-in-law in the form of a special (and cheap) calling plan. For roughly $10 a month, we get a phone with somewhere around 300 minutes anytime/anywhere. And calls to people within the network (Cingular) are free.

My brother and sil started up the plan and got so many phones, two of which they use, one for my Mom and Dad and the final one will be ours.

It's an opportunity I can't let pass. Rachel has to drive around Monkeytown quite a bit sometimes and this will be a good safety net. We've agreed it'll be for emergencies and for calls of special magnificence like "Do we need milk?" We also agreed to and will stand by our "No use while driving" rule.
So, there you are. I'd said before we'd probably get one in the future and the future is now!

Welcome to the new century Sipper family.

They are a nice device to have. Please email me the number once you’re connected.

Next, you guys should look into getting one of those color TV's for the house. They are great! You can watch the news, check on the weather, and even watch movies right in your own home.

well done sip, email us the number, i swear we will only call it in an emergency....

sorry for all the comments...

Sip, word to the wise...
Don't mention to the computer lady that you desire a robot lawn mower. You would be wise to keep that information from her. She knows much about the robot uprising and you don't want to get her started.

Comment away, my friend!

Oh, but I do want a robot lawn mower! I just want one I can turn loose in my fenced-in back yard. If that's all taken care of, I can easily knock out the rest of the yard in 30 minutes with my push mower!

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!

Our phone arrived and I sent you all the number. Only for emergencies, though!

BTW, we're getting our first robot!

Rachel used our Discover cash back to get us a Roomba! We'll let you know how it works. Hopefully it'll be cool.
