Hey wow. That's kind of interesting. I just read about it using communication cells. Hm. I still like the battery thing though. lol.
ANyway, most koreans refer to them as hand phones. I don't know why, go figure.
So my mother is like, Go get the handphone. To which I comply submissively by picking up one of the family cordless phones. So she looks at me and replys, No no, the hand phone! So I'm sitting there with a cell phone in one hand and the family cordless phone in the other, and I'm like, What the hell kinda handphone are you talking about?!
Haha. I'm a bit under the influence. Can you tell?
