My Blackberry has a leather case which you can clip onto your belt or trousers. This morning as I walked to the shops with the sun behind me I caught sight of my shadow on the ground in front of me. In the shadow my Blackberry looked like a gun in its holster poised for action.
Is the Blackberry the modern equivalent of the gun in the wild west? But instead of firing bullets we fire off emails?
Just a thought. Have a good weekend.

In 2005 the poet Carol Ann Duffy published a book of poems called Rapture. One of the poems was about text messages being fired like bullets, and how a text can emotionally hurt like a bullet physically would.
is that an iphone in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?
Darling a Blackberry is so six months ago. Get an iPhone.
