I own a gold mobile telephone.
At first, I tried to deny it. I tried to convince myself and others that it was "bronze" or "champagne." The truth triumphed.
Later, I tried to change it. I bought a transparent face and back-plate on ebay. Over a few months, these have cracked and shattered into pieces and my phone has returned to its original color.
Today, I have decided to embrace the fact. I will take proud in my gold telephone and have changed its ringtone to this midi rendition of the theme to Goldfinger to demonstrate my pride to everyone within earshot.
