A lot of people tell me, "It's just a phone, calm the ******* down. Do you really need it to arrive on launch day?" To them, I say, "It's fun to get excited about things. You should try it some time. When you were a kid, did you get excited about your birthday, or Christmas morning? Why not experience that same anticipation and elation as an adult? Are you too 'mature' to feel any pleasure in life? Or is making fun of other people the only way for grown ups to have fun?" When my grandfather was in his 80's, with over a million dollars in real estate and stocks, he would still get excited about ice cream, fine cheese, and chocolate. And you know what? He was quite possibly the happiest man I have ever known. Being that happy made him nice, and fun to be around, and generous. It takes more than the promise of ice cream to get me excited. Maybe I am jaded. A new iPhone 4S should do nicely, though.
