And the answer is none. None more purple.

I finally ditched my phone today—
paid off my contact and cut my losses.
It was the only way.

Not having one is inconvenient—
I've become more reliant than I ever wanted to be.
It's complicated.

I could have walked out with a new phone—
they had a suitable model, but in one colour only:
it's boring black!

So I will go without for a couple of days—
because (naturally!) I need one in my favourite colour.
It's purple!

Well, the phone is advertised as being purple—
more like lilac really. Close enough.
It had to be done!

So, I'm twiddling my thumbs and feeling twitchy—
without my phone, I'm checking emails compulsively.
It'll be worth the wait!
