At the BlogHer ’11 convention this weekend, I noticed some people staring at me. One woman stared at me while we were waiting for a session to start. Another woman stared at me from across one of the tables at lunch. These were women I said hello to… and made small talk with…yet I couldn’t figure out why they were looking at me so intently. I wiped at my face, thinking pesto must be there.
I thought perhaps I was being rude — burying my nose in my phone and texting, rather than engaging. So I put my phone down. As I did so, the eyes of the lady across the lunch table followed my phone to the table. I looked up at her and she said, “I was admiring your phone case. Where did you get that?”
Ahhhhh… so it wasn’t about me. It was about my phone case. Sometimes I’m as egocentric as my preschooler.
Throughout the weekend, at least half a dozen more people commented on my phone case. I can’t blame them. It rocks.
It’s a picture of me… taking a picture of me… looking at me… holding my phone… that has a picture of me.
Where did I get it? I got it from a company called Uncommon. They design custom Apple accessories.
And because I don’t want to be alone in my egocentricity, you can get one too at a pretty discount.
You don’t have to put a picture of yourself on it. You can design your own artwork, or chose from already designed cases. But, seriously, I would feel a lot better if you put a big fat picture of your face on it.
Just go to www.getuncommon.com, and design your case.
