Spark Comic #58 - Mobile Virgin

This comic has been on my backlog for a while, along with a few other iPhone related ideas.

As uncomfortable as the subject matter may be, I'm currently a virgin and I can't say I'm at all ashamed of to say it. There's no religious or special reason why. I just am. There's nothing wrong with that. And while I don't really care at all about that, I do find it odd to be looking at my phone and the word is constantly staring at me in the face while I browse through it. Doesn't really bother me, but it is sort of weird. I can't say it isn't at least a bit awkward to be signing with a company called "Virgin Mobile" as my mobile provider (And yes, it's a real company). After a while it does sort of feel like it's trying to mock me, but I'm not really bothered by it. I only exaggerated the last panel because it seemed funny and this week is "Singles Awareness" (AKA Valentine's) Week so us Singles might relate. Whatever you do, this Valentine's Day, don't take an arrow to the heart. :P

Ever since I got my iPhone, I've loved it. Previously I owned a flip phone and went on Pay-As-You-Go. I didn't use my phone much so it was fine for me, until I got to University, when I found myself using my phone to communicate with people a lot more and got really pissed off at all my minutes running out or (more often) expiring before I could even use them, so in terms of phone plans you could say I was a 'Mobile Virgin' (Ha!). I didn't think I'd use it as much, but the day after I got it, it was actually pretty essential since I needed to find this REALLY hard to find Nintendo Repair shop for my 3DS around the outskirts of the city and NEVER would've found the place without it's super useful maps, which is one of my favorite functions. Odd phone plan provider name aside, I'm really happy with my smartphone.

See you next comic! :)
