Mobile

 


Ever since my phone fell in the loo ( after I had just enjoyed a robust number two) it has not worked, very well. 
I bit the bullet and rang Tesco Mobile on Monday and the delightful Leanne organised me a new phone with various bells and whistles on it and a monthly tariff much lower than the one I had been enjoying.
She giggled when I told her to treat me as an idiot during her sales pitch 
And did exactly what I asked her.
I have been navigating my new phone today and I must say that
I’d rather be setting the parameters on an ITU ventilator for after four hours, my brain is totally fried and
I’ve had to recover my having a bubble hot bath with my face covered by a wet flannel.

I spoke to Nu today, she’s working on the covid wards now in London  
How do you do long days ? She asked
With difficulty I told her
We swapped laughs and reviews on tv programmes 
She looked tired.
I do miss her.

I saw Pippa from the Rectory earlier today, she was being dragged down the lane by her long legged Mongrel, Meg.She only just managed a controlled stop in order to chat.
Her husband is probably enjoying the most cerebral covid pastimes she told me after the village gossip was over
he’s reading the Bible in Greek “ she said proudly 
I opened my mouth but said nothing
How can you follow that !

      I got married 2 years ago and it just seemed that there was no excitement in my sex life.

And i was having the feelings that she may decide to get a divorce one day. I knew something had to be done in order to improve my sex life and to save my marriage because my marriage was already falling apart, so when i was on my Facebook page i came across a story of how Dr Aziba helped him enlarged his penis to 8ins better.so i Immediately copied the Email address of the Dr and explained to him my problem, he gave me some simply instruction which i must follow and i did easily and my friends Today, i am the happiest man on Earth, All Thanks to Dr Aziba for saving my marriage and making me a real man today. I asked him about some popular diseases like HERPES,HIV AIDS,HEPATITES,DIABETIS, CANCERS, WART, HPV etc.. which are affecting most people he said there is no disease without a cure, he has it all...You can as well reach the Dr below for help on your problem, for he has the solution to all...

  3. There is nothing like learning new technology to make one feel like a dinosaur. Soon it will feel like second nature again.

    I wonder if you and Nu can schedule a hopeful post-Covid weekend, say in March or July or something. Even having something that far out to look toward is better than nothing. Though a bubble bath and a warm washcloth certainly are a good remedy for many an emotional ailment in the meantime.

  7. Reading a Greek Bible and figuring out a new phone has similar difficulties. “It is all Greek to me.”

  13. If I ever drop my mobile phone down the loo, regardless of what I am doing or not doing there, having to have a new one will undoubtedly result in a nervous breakdown

  14. So many people to be impressed by here. You, for grappling with a new phone. Nu for working on the frontline, and Pippa's husband for being able to read anything in Greek! xx

    Wishing you well with the steep learning curve for your new phone. My phone rests on the far side of the dry loo sink so it cannot fall in.
    All my best to Nu and the medical workers world wide as they try their best to care for the rest of us.
    I echo: "It's all Greek to me."

    Hugs!

  16. My brother reads the Bible in Greek (he's a vicar)! He'd learnt it in school, then re-learnt it years later before he went to study theology. He can barely boil an egg though!!!

  19. When purchasing one of my first cellphones, I asked the salesperson if there was a manual online or anywhere. There wasn't, but she gave me what I found to be good, practical advice: Don't wait till you're trying to get something done with your phone because that's just frustrating. Instead, sit down with it for 10 or 15 minutes in the evenings and play with it. You'll learn a lot that way." And without the frustration. -Kate

  20. Reading the Bible in Greek? I'm waiting for the movie to come out.

  21. YouTube often has good instruction. The complexity of cell phones is far greater than it should be. I see no ease of use standards for the cell phone makers. Lots of love and well wishes for Nu. Working in London on the Covid ward has to be very hard. I'm glad you are there for each other.

  22. I totally get the technology thing. When my daughter lived her, I would make her come with me to the phone store or to listen in on a phone call. Tech is not my forte!

  23. Reading the Bible in Greek!? If I manage to get the laundry done I feel well-accomplished.

  27. I presume that your rectory contains a rector; a rare thing these days, they more often are home to a Penelope Ponsonby-Smythe.

  28. I took Russian in college. My roommate had transferred from religious college where she had learned Greek. We had a dry erase board on the door and would leave messages to each other. Others would make comments. This annoyed us, so we began leaving messages using the Cyrillic/Greek alphabet phonetically. Annoyed the heck out of others on the floor, which delighted us no end.
