Entering the 21st Century
We're finally getting cell phones! It took a lot of convincing (okay, begging and pleading), but Erick finally gave me the OK to sign up for a plan. We went with Cingular, and the phones get here Friday.
He's still not convinced, he doesn't want a phone, but lots of other people want him to have one, especially his brother, Josh. There was one time when the band was playing in Brisbane (1 hour away) and Josh didn't realize until he got to the club that they needed to bring a sound system. Had Erick had a cell phone, Josh could have caught him while he was still in San Jose and could swing back by the house to pick up the equipment. As it was, Erick didn't find out till he got to Brisbane and had to drive all the way back home.
So anyway, there was one condition on Erick agreeing to letting me get a cell phone:
He gets to buy a handgun.
