It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a beloved friend and gadget, but you should know that my iPod died in its sleep this morning after a weeks long battle with it being all weird, corrupting files and dropping songs and whatnot.
This iPod has been a good friend and companion ever since he joined our family over three years ago. With his ample disk space and impeccable "shuffle" function, he was a boon to me and my family on road trips, morning commutes, study sessions and many school projects and papers. I will always treasure the time we spent together sequencing mixtapes, driving to Idaho Falls and Las Vegas from Rexburg and shuttling files to and from work. Vaya con Dios, mi amigo...
The iPod is survived by me, but just barely. Services will be held every time I go to listen to music when I'm not at home and can't because it has died and is gone. Forever.
Memorial contributions can be sent to me cuz I'm broke and can't afford to get a new one right now.
Sic transit gloria.
Also, did you hear the Taco Bell chihuahua died? I wonder who #3's gonna be? Hopefully it's that dude from those Alltel commercials, Chad. I hate that dude.
