That headline isn’t clickbait. Read on if you want to laugh at me (I’m not quite at the “laugh with me” stage, yet) — and before you hire Postmates to deliver your Popeyes three-piece tonight.
Last Sunday, we in northern California were pelted by a historic “bomb cyclone” that drenched Sacramento with 5.44 inches of rain in a 24 hour period. We’ve been in a draught and have been praying for rain, and we got it: almost five and a half inches, 25% of our average annual rainfall…in a single day!
As such, I kept my black backside decidedly inside and blissfully dry all day, deciding to shift a planned pickup at my local Apple Store to an armchair event. With my iPad mini 6 in hand (more on that later), I hopped online and ordered an iPhone 13 mini. I selected a two hour delivery window and, in exchange for a meager $9 delivery charge, I sipped a glass of merlot, sniffed the curry chicken in my crock pot, and awaited the delivery of the new iPhone with which I’d planned to be playing by nightfall.
