Santa brought me a tablet for Christmas. Furthermore, this year Santa tried to be very sneaky and he used the Amazon account of a good friend instead of our own, to hide his tracks from Mrs. Santa.
Santa looked so happy on Christmas day. I just couldn’t do anything else then show joy and happiness over my new tablet. I put it right beside the tablet I already own and sighed inside -just a little bit.
“You wished for an Amazon Fire right?” he asked and sat beside me with a look of satisfaction. Yes, Santa was proud of himself; I could tell.
I had mentioned once that I wanted a kindle paperwhite, but we never talked about it any further.
“I was reading up on the KINDLE-STUFF and Amazon told me that the Fire tablet would be the better deal for you.”
“Amazon told you?” I wondered and tried to imagine how it had happened.
“A window opened when I searched for the KINDLE-STUFF,” he explained and I had to laugh inside. I could picture him sitting in front of the computer at his friend’s house in total confusion. God, I love this man.
“A tablet is so much better,” and he went on to explain to me what I could do with it. “You go online with it, you stream and watch movies and read as well,” and he went on and on.
I couldn’t help but smile.
“I know Honey, ah Santa,” we are doing it almost every night. By DOING I mean streaming. Has he not noticed the tablet in my hands?
Yesterday, finally I had the heart and told him that I will “trade” the tablet for a kindle paperwhite. The word “paperwhite” brought back memories and Santa tried to remember.
“Isn’t it all the same anyway?” he asked and I was wondering how to explain it to him.
“It’s like you have an SUV in the garage that you drive every day, and then you decide you want a second car, a nice little convertible just for road trips, and somebody talks you into another SUV instead.” Santa understood.
Today in the morning I went online to order the kindle paperwhite and I looked at the questions and answers from other users -as I always do.
One stood out. A customer wanted to know if he could get a stylish cover for the kindle and I laughed out loud:
Question: can you get a stylist for a kindle
Answer: You can technically get a stylist, but shampoo will probably ruin the electronics, the hair dryer will melt the plastic, and any clothes on it will still make it look square.
Don’t you love people’s humor?
