My girlfriend got an iPod and all I got was her lousy MP3 player!

At the Apple Store she was shameless in her selection. After approaching the counter with a finger raised innocently, she said something like,"One iPod please. Biggest one in stock." Well, maybe not really.

We listened to the salesman show us different cases for a while, knowing full well that choosing the perfect case wasn't some kind of impulse buy. It was a whole other decision to be made on some other day entirely. Luckily he sensed this and led us to the checkout counter.

Outside the store, we walked around The Galleria a bit to let it sink in, waiting until we were situated at a quiet restaurant before tearing into it. I watched as Jenny gently removed the outer sleeve, lifted the lid, and peeked inside. It was there and then it was gone. I don't remember being allowed to handle it before it was put in its box again. Later that evening we would sit on the couch, each with an earbud, testing its clarity.

Why can't I have one! Wahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

UPDATE: The temporary tattoo is on its last leg. It held on long enough to have its photo taken apparently, then gave up its fight. I noticed in the shower yesterday morning that part of the right leg and lower chest is starting to flake off. Darn.

In other news, if I'm not mistaken, Amazon is now providing snipets of entire albums instead of just the first five songs. This opens up whole worlds of music!
