Heavier Things


I would like to recount a conversation I had yesterday with a girl who shall remain nameless (GWSRN). Her name has been removed to avoid embarrassment.

GWSRN: Michael, I have an IPOD question.

Michael: Ummm… okay. Shoot.

GWSRN: My ITunes playlists got wiped out on my work laptop. I just downloaded ITunes again and replaced all my old music.

Michael: Uh-huh.

GWSRN: Well, I finally moved all of those songs onto my IPod… and I swear, the IPod is heavier now.

Michael: Heavier? Because you downloaded 300 songs?

GWSRN: Yeah… I mean, that’s a lot of songs. That’s got to weigh something, right?

Please note that the GWSRN does not have blond hair, legally operates a motor vehicle, holds a job, and speaks in full sentences.

Now that you mention it, my iPod has seemed a tad heavier since I downloaded the new Gorillaz CD.

Having known GWSRN for a while now, without defending her, I can understand her dilemna. Since our wedding, GWSRN has acquired a knack for cooking. Her specialty, as of last week, was a white cake, covered with 3 lbs. of whipped cream & cut up fresh strawberries. She refers to this masterpiece as "ghetto cake". Last Wednesday, I came home from the gym & anxious to delve into her masterpiece when, to my surprise, I found that 5 pieces were gone & she was laid up on the sofa holding her belly. I knew what had happened & I think she's assuming if you "over indulge" yourself with ghetto cake, despite trying to justify it with PMS symptoms, the same "weight gaining" principals can apply to an iPOD...

As sister-in-law to GWSRN I must defend her..while initially a bit aghast at the comment, my memory quickly slapped me in the face as I recalled a conversation where my boss told me to use my thumb drive to download something and...unfortunately, I did ask that question, "how do i get my thumb in the slot to get the drive?"...
To answer your question:
1. no...i did not get fired.
2. Yes i am blond (albeit thanks to Andre who does a great job for the obscene amount of money i pay him each month)
You go, GWSRN, I understand...

I've found that since I've stopped paying attention and trying to remember stuff that my brain has felt a lot lighter. Or maybe the drugs and alcohol is just killing the brain cells off, causing a reduction in weight.

It's like, each song is a calorie, right?

i always told those 40 and 60gig iPods to lose some weight!

At least the 30gig model slimmed down, take a generation or two.

Wow, that whole exchange reminds me of the Lewis Black line “if it weren’t for my horse, I wouldn’t have spent that year in college”. Try not to wrap your mind around it, and you’ll be OK.
