My contract is almost up with my cell phone company and it's that wonderful time of year, like Christmas for grown-ups...the day you get to upgrade your phone. And I've been scouting for a while. I was ready. I wanted that pink Razr phone. Until Sarah Jessica Parker went and amucked it all up.
In People magazine (March 6, 2006), after they ask her if she feels she's competing with teen actresses, she replies, "What, am I crazy? If I carried a pink cell phone, that'd be delusional. Lindsay Lohan should carry a pink cell phone. Know your age."
If you wanted proof that cell phones are a fashion accessory today, there it is. A pink cell phone, to the cultured class, is obviously in the same realm as the belly ring, the midriff-baring shirt, thong underwear hanging out of your jeans...it's for "the young ones."
So now I can't decide. Do I rebel and get the pink one as my "I'm not dead yet, damnit!" to the world? Or do I opt for the subtler silver so should I ever run into Sarah Jessica Parker in the supermarket she doesn't think me gauche?
Right now, I'm still leaning towards being pretty in pink. Just because I know my age doesn't mean I have to act it. Geesh. ;)
