Some of you will already know about Nokia .....
We were together, happily together for the best part of ten years. And life was good: she a basic model and me a simple soul - a match made in 3G heaven. And it's not as though she hadn't been dropped before. But the thing is ..... previously she'd always bounced back and one way or another we'd been able to patch things up. This time though it wasn't to be.
Secretly I'd hoped that she might accompany me into old age: partners in a shared mutual decline, her figure fading as I tried desperately to press the right buttons.
Two weeks after the incident and she still calls out in the dark, but communicate, she can't. She has stopped responding. When charged she can spell out "opening" and I look and I hope but nothing happens. And now it never will.
I am alone and more upset than I expected. Nokia has passed away and now I must learn to love another.
