I haven't written a long post since my lack of good material to write about.
First, lets talk about Ipod's, you know, those over-priced, low-quality sound MP3 players that everyone likes. I have heard various histories about how Ipods are horrible, and back in 2005 when I was going to buy an MP3, i kept asking about good MP3 players that are not Ipods. Some people showed me some cheap-looking Zen player, it was cheaper, but it didnt look as durable as the Ipod (and I think it couldn't have survived what my Ipod has.) So I bought a silver, second-gen Ipod Nano with 4 gigs of memory, I was pleased.
Last year, I was in a friend's house which has a pool, so we were throwing everyone at the pool. My turn came and, even though I put some resistance, I got thrown. I had my Ipod, my cellphone and my wallet in my jeans.
My cellphone died, and for 2 hours I thought my Ipod had too. But the screen turned on, and my Ipod was back! with some water marks in the screen looking as scars of an accident.
I was happy, it worked like if it was new.
But then, the grief came again, and now it was worse.
I returned from holiday vacation and my mom threw my pants to the washing machine, without knowing my Ipod was inside, and then worse, after the washing machine, the pants went into the dryer.
WHen my mom took them out, she felt a bulk in the pocket. There was my Ipod: hot, corners slightly melted, and unable to turn on.
I put it in the dock, waiting for it to charge, but it didnt happen. I left it there for two days...nothing. At the third day, the screen turned on! I was happy again, but not for so long, just as I unplugged my Ipod the screen turned off. My Ipod was a handicap, it needed to be plugged in order to work. So I left it there, in the dock.
One day, my sister wanted to charge her Ipod so she unplugged mine and gave it to me....it was turned on! It worked completely fine!
That's my Ipod's story of survival.
