My love affair with my iPod all began in 2005, when my husband bought me my blue Mini. I loved it! So compact and cute, I could fit so many books and songs in the humongous 4 gigabytes of storage. That same year, the Nano came out. Daughter number one received a 2GB Nano for her fall birthday. Dear husband received a 4GB Nano from his boss for Christmas. Since Husband never listens to music, he gave his Nano to daughter number one, and daughter number two got her sister's 2GB Nano. Still with me?
Dear Husband, being the generous, trusting dad, allowed both daughters to bring their iPods to school, against my better judgement. "They're both in middle school," he said, "and they're both sooo responsible!" E, the second daughter came home a few months later, upset. Her iPod was stolen.
You know what I did? I consoled my daughter and gave her my shiny, blue Mini. In the meantime, I found an abandoned HP iPod at my brother's house. He said that the old iPod wasn't working properly and had bought himself a better one. So now I had Brother's iPod. That worked for about two months until it died.
Dear Husband took pity upon me and bought me my first iPod video. Wow! 30GB! I'll never run out of room. "Hold on," says Husband, "you don't have enough memory in your computer." Oh...
That's okay. I learned to use an exterior drive to store all my files.
I would love an iPhone, but can't justify the $30/month data fees. That's $360 a year! Can't I get an iPhone without the data fees? "No," answered the phone guy, "why would you want an iPhone without a data package?" So I don 't have to carry my phone and iPod? Nevermind, you wouldn't get it.
So what does my iPod have to do with knitting, sewing, quilting, or gardening? Everything! I can do all those activities and "read" at the same time.
