Not exactly corrections

As PapaKizz has pointed out in the comments I got his big news utterly wrong. Sometimes this happens to me. Like on Thursday I was being asked to remember something that happened in September I was able to say to some woman, "I remember speaking to a woman in particular, we were worried about getting the check there so I asked her to call me when the messenger arrived and she did. I don't remember her name but I can find began with...A" And it did and I was right. However, after I got off the phone with dad I was sure that it was a play that began with H so I googled Pinter and found a play that began with H and it sounded right so I went with it. Um. No. He's in MOONLIGHT and he's playing Andy, I believe.

Something else PapaKizz and I talked about that should be clarified.

Me: I have to go to the apple store tomorrow to get a new power cord for my laptop. It's almost out of juice and the cord is totally gone now.

Him: Just go, you go, it'll be about $20 and that'll be that, it's not a big deal.

Me: I know, it's just a matter of going, I was waiting until the last minute.

So, I went today and wowee, were we wrong. $79. Seventy-nine American dollars.

I bought myself an iHome, too, because I really, really, really wanted one.


  1. Yeah, I could have told you about the power cord price; I somehow managed to LOSE my power cord. Don't ask me how. I'm still convinced it will show up somewhere completely improbable.

    Congrats on the iHome. Is it fantastic?

  2. The new cord is actually some better. It seems to be reinforced at the place where my old one frayed and detached. And yet I'm still not thinking that it's $79 better. Perhaps they added on a gasoline fee for shipping to the store.
