I received my birthday present from M&D this morning, and spent part of the day settling in with it. It’s an 8GB iPod Nano to replace my now defunct 30GB iPod. I debated awhile between black (again), pink or red. Finally decided I was tired of black and the red made me think of U2 ads, so pink it was! No soft petal pink this, but a bright, flashy pink! Pink just the color of my raincoat and matching umbrella. Pink that you just can’t find in nature. PINK! It makes me happy just to look at it. :)
I’ve named it Jake. Engraved on its flip side it says:
M&D – April 13, 2008
No one else in the entire world can appreciate my total amusement factor based on those two small words as much as my Mum & Dad. We all laughed like fools as soon as I said, “I called it Jake”.
(No, I don’t know anyone named Jake.) But still… Jake! FTW!
