I’m not one to show off what I own, or anything for that matter. So for me, having a $150+ piece of technology on my wrist didn’t come easily. All it took was a single post on eBay for curiosity to take over. It was only $3.99, three hundred ninety nine little pennies, how could pass up an offer so cheap? I simply had to give the concept of having an iPod on my wrist a try, for there was nothing to lose. Except my dignity, and my hard earned pennies.
Weeks later, I opened the manila envelope straight out of China to find quite possibly the ugliest band of black silicone I’ve ever laid my eyes on. I managed to jam my iPod into the encasing that, after a journey across the globe, would sit atop my wrist in only a few moments. It was on my wrist, and I walked downstairs only to be greeted with immediate ridicule from my family, as anyone would expect.
I have worn the watch once since.
