Bye bye Sally the iPod

Since Ron just went out and said it, I'll do the same. He dropped my iPod. What's left of it is a little box that clicks. He's going to replace it, but I'm going to miss my old one. I went through an awful lot to get it, and we had some good times together. But, I need to get over it. Sally exists no more.

I feel guilty about him replacing it. If he had money for an iPod, he would have bought one for himself by now (he's had mine borrowed for a couple of months, with a few short hiatuses). He'll have a lot more money come August, so I told him he could replace it then. I'll miss it, but not anymore than I had been with him borrowing it these past two months.

My new 20 GB 4th Generation iPod was $299 (well, if I had paid for it). They don't make it anymore. Now for $299 they have a 30 gig, color, video iPod. That comes in black. DUM DUM DUM. BUT my iPod certainly wasn't worth $299 anymore, I've had it for over a year, so I'd feel guilty asking for that one. Actually I feel guilty asking for anything at all, but one of my HUGE pet peeves is when people borrow things of mine and don't treat them nicely and break or lose them.. and I HAD warned him about it. Plus... it's not my fault, and I really want an iPod. MY iPod really, but that's not going to happen. Sigh (I actually did sigh right then).

So it seems like the logical choice would be to ask him to find a used iPod on eBay. I checked, and the 20 gig 4g ones are less than $200 at closing, it seems, some of them new in box with warranty. I think that's probably the fairest solution.

Thoughts?
