I tried to think of “words of astonishment” to adequately express my …. uh …. astonishment at one of the numbers that Apple released this week.
“Holy Cow!” << not strong enough
“Holy Mackerel!” << sounds like a flashback to decades ago
“Good Heavens!” << too tame
“Holy Smokes!” << ( interesting sidebar: lots of these phrases contain the word “holy”.)
“Great Caesar’s Ghost!” << I think this comes from Perry White of Superman fame
“Goodness Gracious” << wayyyyyy too calm
I give up.
I can’t find a phrase to adequately express my astonishment.
For what, you ask?
For this astounding fact that Apple released a few days ago:
(read slowly, now, to digest this, fully)
For the last quarter (that’s THREE MONTHS), Apple sold 34,000 iPhones an HOUR.
EACH DAY, 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK, FOR THREE MONTHS ……
That’s 34 THOUSAND iPhones EVERY HOUR!!!
I just can’t get my head around that number.😯
If you have any words of astonishment that suits …. I would appreciate it.
