Just one more reason I shouldn't have a cell phone

About a year ago, I finally broke down and bought a cell phone. I'm not very good at it. Because I knew I wouldn't be very good at it, I bought a go-phone, which was the most economical choice. (I'm also cheap)

I put $100 on it, and it still has 92 of them. So I decided recently that I would actually use it once in a while.

This backfires on me, though. Saturday I was at Steinmart buying jeans that turned out to be bras, when I ran across a pair of really cute sunglasses. At least, I think they were cute. I can never tell. So I thought, I'll just take a picture on my phone, and send it to my bffs, who will tell me if they're cute or not, becuase my bffs wouldn't let me walk around looking like more of an idiot than usual. I was proud of myself for remembering 1) that I have a cell phone, and 2) to put it in my purse.

So, I whipped out my cell phone, and it was dead dead dead. 

I think the last time I had turned it on was at the rodeo. I took a picture of one of the barrel racers and sent it to my bffs. (sensing a theme here?) I got a response back from one of them asking, Who is this? so I replied with a text saying Barrel chick. This particular bff dropped off the face of the earth about a week ago, so last night I sent her a text to let her know I was thinking of her. See how good I am about using my phone more?

Only, as soon as I hit send I remembered that she had changed her cell phone number back in November. And I started thinking that I hadn't programmed the new number into my phone. So I checked, and sure enough I had her old number in my phone. Which made the response I got from not-her about my rodeo pic make so much sense.

I'm thinking if I get another text asking Who is this? I should reply with Barrel Chick.
