Today is the day I become 31. It is my birthday, and for my birthday, iGot something iLove. Can you guess what it is?

It’s an iPod! YEAH!!! And it is the most magnificent piece of technology I’ve ever held in my chubby little hands. Dave gave it to me a day early since he’s off working this weekend, and I got to break it in during our all day mowing marathon, yesterday.

Lawnmowing + iPod = Pure Joy

I pushed Big Red with a purpose, bouncing to the music and mouthing the words. By the time I hit the front yard, I was belting out those lyrics, twirling, jumping, and kicking with my mechanical dance partner. It wasn’t until our neighbor drove by that I considered things might be getting out of hand. Moves like that probably aren’t especially safe while mowing, but then I said, “You can dance if you want to, you can leave your friends behind. ‘Cause your friends don’t dance and if they dont’ dance, well they’re no friends of mine.” And,

iPod(Leslie + Big Red) + Copacabana = HOT

so, I didn’t stop.

After a long day, we slept together last night. I awoke this morning with sore ears. I reached up to touch them and felt the little iBuds still jammed deep in my ear holes and iPod was tucked lovingly between my arm and my breast.

Today, I’m walking on air.
