A couple of months ago, sweat leaked into my iPod when I had it stuck in my workout bra while I was mowing the yard. I know, that's nasty, but I can't help it. My life revolves around music. I barely make a move without consulting either Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, or The Black Crowes. His name was Clint (the iPod) and after he got wet he started a slow but steady decline that would leave me nervous, almost frantic, knowing that it was just a matter of time before he took a shit on me and I would have to break down and buy a new one, and let me tell you, them bitches ain't cheap. $249 for a 160 GB iPod, which is what this girl needs since I have 12,000 + songs in my iTunes library. I do not mess around with my glorious music.
Well, there I was, in a panic on the Apple website, trying to figure out how I was gonna get a new iPod, when all of a sudden I see the most amazing words a stressed out broke bitch could see...FINANCING AVAILABLE. What? For real? I was so excited I have to say that the next few seconds were spent in a haze as my mind processed just how much damage I could do with a shitload of Apple crack, I mean credit. So what did I do? I went for it! I filled out the form and 10 seconds after I hit submit this lucky bitch had a $1,500 credit card that could be used right away on the Apple site! Woo hoo! That's right! 6 months no interest! Needless to say I was ecstatic. ECSTATIC. Stevie Wonder could see how ecstatic I was.
Anyway, I then proceeded to buy my classic 160 GB iPod, the new 16 GB iPod Nano, and the iPhone 5 - all for $666.69. That's a damn good number if I may say so myself. In the past week I have received all my merchandise except for the iPhone. It should be here in a couple of weeks. And let me tell you, I could not be happier.
I know in my heart that if I had to succumb to either blindness or deafness, being deaf would break me. I have no interest in being on this earth if I can't hear Dave Brubek or Elton John, or Piper and Daisy when they purr, or the sound of my family and friends when they laugh and tell me they love me. Not seeing them would be devastating, but I could visualize. Not hearing them would mean death for me.
