I had the opportunity to take advantage of some free perks from Office Depot through work. They have been giving away items of $29 value with a qualifying order. Since I send in orders all the time being in an office, I took advantage of the MP3 player they were giving away!
I HAVE GRADUATED!
The last electronic device I owned was a portable CD player with headphones (which I bought in 2004) so I am feeling extra privileged over here...
The real reason I wanted to share this story was not to brag - really what's to brag about an MP3 player - but to give you my lovely innocent children's reaction:
First - of course they wanted it for them!
As I am opening it, my daughter is asking to listen to it and my son keeps trying to touch it instead of doing his homework.
Second - They both suggested songs for me to put on it like "I Like to Move it, Move it" and the new ICarly song!
Third - and most innocently, my daughter asks:
"Mom, do you even know what to do with an MP3 player?"
Now, this from a teenaged daughter would have come across sarcastically in every way possible. This darling, sweet 5 year old was asking me honestly!
Am I really that old? Am I really THAT far out of the loop?
I didn't think I was...
I was wondering why the cord to the headphones was uneven though..I hope mine's not defective or anything! Glad to know they still label the headphones so I knew which ear to put them in - ha.
BTW - uploaded 191 songs in that puppy tonight and will be enjoying it on the train ride in the morning so I'm not as electronically challenged as my children think I am! I did notice that most of the songs were 90's or earlier - hmmm.
