With the upcoming move of which we still have no nailed down date we're trying to curb our spending because there always ends up being stuff that you need to buy when you move. With that being said, Mike is flying to Boston this weekend to see the Brewers play the Red Sox. He announced he was going to be sooooo bored on the plane and made a comment that went something like this, "You think my wife would buy me a nano since I'm the one taking care of all the details for our move." Followed by a giant sigh and a pathetic look. I told him we should just go buy him one and be done with it. "No, I'll just go sit on the plane and be bored." he says, in a martyr voice that I thought only I could pull off as I see him eyeing my pretty pink nano. Uhhh, no way buddy.
I have a sewing maching fund. I decided to dip into it to buy him a nano. I got it at lunch and still had enough time to drive past his work and drop it off...thinking he'd be all excited. I call and tell him to meet me outside in two minutes. His response, "You didn't buy the damn thing did you?" I wanted to cry...I mean it WAS money from my sewing machine fund. I drop it off and tell him it was from my fund and I go on my merry way. A few hours later he sends me this email:

For being a butt head and getting me something nice like this…..
Mike had to go help his brother which left me home to work on the ipod install. I set it up on his desktop and then I started attempting to copy music from my PC to his. He had most of the music already but needed the stuff that I had put onto discs that we purchased previously from Napster. By the time I was done, out of his 80GB hard drive, he had 6MB left. So then, I had to spend time freeing stuff up. I found 11GB. Now while he's gone I'll go through more to see what else I can get rid of.
Like me, he just keeps muttering....it's so tiny!! This ipod is just such a difference from our previous Dell MP3 players, it's not even funny. He's blown away that he can download a movie or a few tv shows. Podcasts; that's like talk radio ON DEMAND!!
So honey, have fun...I might even show you where you can find 'classic' Brewer games to re-listen to in the same way you re-watch them on ESPN.
