Kicking It Old School
Posted by Sam at 4:57 PM | tags: ,

The iPod turned 5-years-old yesterday. What the hell am I still doing with this ancient, heavy as a brick, second generation, prehistoric iPod (circa 2001)? I'm kicking it old school... that's what!

I saw a t-shirt somewhere that said, "I had an iPod before you even knew what one was." Man, that totally rings true. I can still remember five years ago when I would whip out my iPod and people were like, "Dude, what the hell is that thing?" At the time, it was pretty sexy and induced quite a few jealous stares from my gadget-obsessed, albeit uniformed peers. Yeah, I was the coolest kid on the block. Interestingly, when I whip out my iPod nowadays, I get the same, "Dude, what the hell is that thing?" But instead of my peers drooling lustfully and implying awe with their remark, they scoff at my ancient relic and comment, hurtfully, at the lack of a color display. All this, while they pull out their brand new video iPods and play some hot new movie that they torrented and transfered onto that slick device. God, I just hate them all! I hate them so much. And I hate that smug look of satisfaction on their conniving little faces too.

Right. So anyway, happy belated birthday, old friend. Hopefully you'll die soon so that I can replace you with something younger and prettier.

Hey... That sounds familiar. Oh wait. It's what my husband wrote in my birthday card last year.

Wow, Sam. I'm actually a bit surprised that it still runs, what with all the battery complaints those years back.

Congrats, lil iPod, you've outlived your peers...but not your children. :)

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
