My New I-pod




So I was curious this past weekend. No cards, no nothing from my students. My wife treated me to Dinner and a movie. And my children gave me a party but the teens: Nothing.

Then on Sunday - they had cake, and cards which was fine. The past few months I've been joking on them (My own dry humour) about my invisible I-pod (Because they all got one and I don't and really probably wouldn't of bought myself one). Then one of my students handed me a gift, opened the box and asked if this was really what it was? And they responded: YES. A colour 30 GB I-pod - how cool is that? They pooled their money and got me one. Now if I can one figure out how to work it.

Really, nice work on the "relationship" thing!

I just got a nano. When we bought my daughter her new computer for college she got a nano for free (after rebate). since she already HAS the same ipod you just got, Daddy got the nano.

Yes, I'm a pod person.

yeah, that was so cool of them. The kids never remember my birthday. One year, however, my small group did and they gave me a parallel Bible. I had reallyw anted one and was totally touched they'd do that.
