There is no competition

Once you’ve had the experience there is no competition. I wasn’t expecting it. I wasn’t looking for it. It just happened.

I told myself I’m older now…and wiser. When I make choices, it’s about function over form. My superficial days are behind me. I had made my list of what I need rather than what I want. All that was left was to get some advice via a Facebook friend survey. The jury was out. Some said one thing, some said the other.

Then it happened yesterday during late lunch at Patisserie Valerie in Covent Garden with an ex-colleague who I hadn’t seen for a long while. We shared stories of our life so far following our move from our mutual place of employment.

Little did she know I had something in my bag that would blow her mind. Little did I know she had a little something too. I was feeling pretty smug when I pulled out my Body Magic and explained how it reduces people 2-3 sizes in 10 minutes. She was impressed. She shrilled with delight. Just as I knew she would.

My show and tell triumph lasted for 10 minutes. It was over before it began. She took it out her bag and let me hold it. The old man next to us couldn’t keep his eyes off it. It was only a matter of time before he struck up a conversation just so he could get a better look.

I held it, she let me play with it, go online, read a book, check out the apps and look at it vertically, horizontally…sigh…it’s official. It’s all about the experience. I’m in love. His name is IPAD.
