“So I Dropped My ipod in a Cup of Coffee”

On the Apple website where you ask for help, someone started a new topic called “So I Dropped My ipod in a Cup of Coffee”.

It’s such a perfect statement, I could cry.

I could so see myself dropping my ipod in a cup of coffee. “Oops.” Then, I would go on to wonder what good thing had happened to me lately that I was paying for. Then, I would conclude I was getting off lightly (vs dying in the WTC). But then I would think, well, maybe I was paying for a little good thing. Then, I’d be distracted by a cat.
