In Michelle-World, all smartphones are Blackberries.

For example, all of the Project Managers in my office carry iPhones. However, when people call in and ask for a manager who is out in the field, I invariably tell the caller that “So & So is out in the field today, but he does have his Blackberry, so you should be able to reach him by e-mail.” Even though absolutely nobody I work with has a Blackberry, not even for their personal phone.


My other one is that any movie that you bring home to play on the television is a “video,” even though I haven’t rented a videocasette in over 10 years. For some reason, it never occurs to me to say “DVD.”

I don’t, however, call the DVD player a “VCR.”
