It’s a sad day. My SIM card has finally died. It lived to a ripe old age. It has the one2one logo on it. Remember them? They used to ask you who would most wanted a one2one with. I seem to remember Kate Moss wanting a one2one with Elvis Presley. My unusually vivid memory is perhaps aided by the fact that she looked really hot in the advert. It’s depressingly clear how advertising works on people afflicted with Y-chromosomes.
When I first got it in 1999, calls were 2p a minute off-peak and text messages were free. Then T-Mobile took over the prices soared, but I was too apathetic to bother changing it. Tomorrow I will have a new SIM, a new number, and a fresh, breezy, positive outlook.
