We talk about people who take their jobs home with them, some folks take this way too seriously. Our own Killian Bell, for instance, gave his poor disappointed daughter a Kindle Fire instead of an iPad last Christmas.
This year, Santa tells me that she has begged him for a phone with Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich, and he’s going to give her this: an iPhone 5 with an ice-cream sandwich case. What a dad!
The case comes from Etsy, costs a mere $20, and is available sized to fit the iPhones 4 and 5, plus a few Samsung Galaxies. It’s made of plastic and aluminum, and in a final insult to his long-suffering offspring, the cookie pictured on the back of the case is just that – a picture printed on a flat panel.
Still, even this case makes a better gift than the one my mother still buys for me every year, even though I’m no longer a child: a pack of cigarettes. I guess I’ll be popular with the neighborhood kids again this year.
