Yesterday, my father — who’s thrilled that you’ve been helping make this project a reality — made a huge contribution to match your spirit of generosity. He bought me an iPhone.
Believe it or not, I’d been living without a one since I moved to France. My Turkish one couldn’t be unlocked here, and for a lot of reasons, I thought, “You know what? I’ll live without it.” It was nice. I didn’t miss it. But obviously, I can no longer be one of those eccentrics who doesn’t have a phone, because I have reporting to do and a book to write. So my father offered to buy me one, and I gratefully accepted.
