Apparently Athena was not with me today. As I was pulling my clothes out from the dryer, I heard a clang from the floor. I looked down and saw my iPod's plastic protective case. My heart sank because that must have meant... you guessed it... I washed and dried my iPod. It didn't take me long in digging to find this hot chunk of glass and metal. I was sort of calm about it. I wasn't angry, just sad, because I had bought the thing this past spring. Also, it was my fault for not checking my pants pockets as thoroughly as I had. $300 just went up in a puff of hot air I thought.
After a few hours, I tried turning it on and nothing happened. A few hours after that I had the idea that maybe I should hook it up to the computer and see if anything happens. I wasn't expecting much and when nothing happened, I wasn't surprised but then.... the apple logo appears and the amazing little POS booted up! Aside from a dent along the bottom and some scratches on the metal panel, it seems completely fine.
Who's the god of luck? I may have to switch.
