The Iowa Crisis

I am reading a book called Darkness, My Old Friend by Lisa Unger. I am enjoying it. It’s the first book I’ve read in months even though I have hundreds on my Nook. It’s also an actual paper book. I didn’t bring my Nook with me and after I got here I realized I had grabbed the wrong white cable and my iPod charge would not make it three days. Off I went to the nearby Walgreens to pick up an old fashioned book.

The young checkout girl at the Walgreens and I struck up a conversation and I told her I was buying a book to replace my iPOD because I had forgotten my cable. The poor checkout girl looked at me like I had just said I accidentally packed my puppy in my checked bag. She told me that they sold the cables there for $8.00. I politely said no, I had two at home so I would just survive without my iPOD for a day. She leaned in close and said in a stage whisper, “no really, it’s okay you can return it at a Walgreens in your city when you get home.” It made me laugh and I assured her that I would survive an airport without my iPOD. I wasn’t sure she was going to let me leave but with a sad goodbye that let me know she didn’t think I was going to be okay I and my old fashioned book made it out.


I leave you with a shot of a perfect end to a lovely day.


Oddly I haven’t used my iPOD at all and it’s still about 75% charged.
