So a few months back I thought I lost Canon, she was in a coma for a few days but she came back to us. It wasn’t long after that that she left us, shutter error. £150 to repair, I could replace her for less. I decided I’d have to wait until I could afford her big brother.
It’s been about 2 weeks now and we miss her terribly.
I woke up this morning to find I’d bumped iPod off the bedside table into the half drunk cup of coffee which was put on the floor to avoid spillage instead of being taken to the kitchen to avoid drownage. So I wake up this morning pick up half drunk coffee put in the sink and turn on hot water leave it to run and return a few minutes later. There lying at the bottom on the mug was lifeless iPod. I took her out as quickly as possible and began to dry her off, put her in m pocket and found myself overwhelmed with grief.
I’ve been travelling for over 10 years, Canon, iPod and Dell have been my loyal loyal companions since 2007. All 3 were united with me that year and until recently I have not had a need to replace or upgrade any of them.
I cried, I’ll admit it, I sobbed actually and made some noise. Neighbors must have thought someone died. Well someone did really. Canon recorded every strange, beautiful, incredible thing that we saw. iPod spoke to me all the time and ever expected me to talk back, she loved to dance with me, especially moonlight garden let it all out dancing.
I wrote my obituary and kept her in my pocket. Said a prayer for Dell knowing from experience that tragedy comes in 3’s. It took me a long while to get the courage to pull her out and have one last look. I figured she would have drowned in the coffee. Seems she is a fighter, I held my breath when I turned her on and ping lights.. No camera.. Grab the speakers and oh my miraculous iPod..
Need to write to Apple soooooooo impressed!
