Cutting Edge

Catherine looked over Melina’s shoulder at the ‘special new release offer’. “Do you really need the new phone? After just two years?”

“Well, this one is bigger and lighter, has more storage, a better camera, and a faster processor…” Melina pursed her lips and crossed her arms. “I don’t need it, but it would be better.”

Without looking up from her book, Melina’s sister said, “Don’t forget it’s 4G, so the connection would be faster.”

Melina’s eyes narrowed and she stared into the middle distance, her lips slowly stretching to a smile.

“Didn’t you say that always getting the newest toy was a waste of money?” Catherine asked.

“Sure is, but it’s good for me if I can get a two-years-old phone for cheap.”
