Dear Dante - The Debut Column

Dear Dante,

I’m back in college, my grades are good, and my favorite holidays are around the corner. I should be happy but I’m not; I’m miserable! Thinking about spending time this fall with family and friends just makes me miss my Juliet.

Dante, I now know that Juliet is my true love. Sadly, when she was mine I took her for granted, deserting her on Saturday nights and ignoring her lonely texts. Finally, she kicked me to the curb saying, “Hasta la vista, baby.” In my mind’s eye, I can still see her ponytail bouncing behind her as she walked out of my life. Now she’s studying in Italy and I’m stuck here in the States.

I’ve texted her my irresistible love poems. I’ve tried calling to plead with her to take me back. But my texts are undeliverable and my calls will not complete.

My situation is dramatic. Dante, please help me contact Juliet!

Signed,

Desperate Romeo Misses Juliet  

 

 

Dear Desperate Romeo,

I’m glad you wrote because I can tell you’re sincere but you need a little guidance from someone like me. As a Cricket celebrity spokesperson, I know Cricket’s phones, plans and features.  And as an actor, I know a thing or two about the human heart.

My friend, I’ve got two kinds of advice for you: easy and hard. Let’s start with the easy stuff.

First, get yourself on a Cricket Unlimited Plan! If you were on one, you could send unlimited SMS texts to 37 countries, including Italy, and Juliet could read your poetry. But listen up, Romeo. Your predicament calls for a more powerful feature: Cricket International Extra. Even a B-movie actor knows that the voice is your tool for conveying emotion and that is what Juliet needs to hear. With Cricket International Extra, you get 1,000 minutes of mobile-to-mobile calling from the U.S. right to Juliet’s cell phone in Italy (and 34 other countries too).

As for the hard advice, Romeo, you’ve got your work cut out for you. You’ve got great passion, but passion alone does not make a great boyfriend. So upgrade to an Unlimited Plan, get Cricket International Extra and then text and talk with Juliet. Ask for her forgiveness and, if you get the chance, do something really special so Juliet knows that your love is real. Perhaps adding Juliet to your Cricket account might be an affordable way to show her just how much you care. The rest is up to you, Romeo!
