I try to avoid personal posts because, well, I am not very good at them but something so tragic, so heartbreaking has happened to me this weekend that I an finding it hard to restrain myself.
As you may remember, I posted recently about my new Sony Reader that I received for Christmas. I was overjoyed, I was thrilled. I loved that thing almost as much as I love just about anything. This sounds all happy and shiny, right? Well, it was all awesome until the ultimate tragedy happened.
It was early in the morning. I had just finished my coffee and was going for my habitual bottle of water. I did not realize the cap was not secured tightly. I did not grip the bottle tight enough and water spilled all over the table. Not such a big problem right? Well it wouldn’t be unless my Sony Reader was sitting on the table right next to me waiting for me to be done with breakfast to curl up and read. Me being stupid and in a panic, pushed the power button which shorted the battery which killed my brand new, fully loaded baby.
This would perhaps not be so bad if I could go out and buy a new one. Maybe even upgrade to the Daily Edition but no every single place is sold out. Best Buy doesn’t even know when there will be another shipment and frankly, I don’t want to wait. I know this was my mistake but I want another one. I may have to convert to a Kindle, not because I want to because I don’t, but because the Sony Reader is nearly impossible to get right now. I sound like Veruka Salt but why can’t they supply enough to meet the demand of idiots who drop water and thereby destroy their brand-new Sony Readers and want a new one.
