in memoriam green iPod mini

Green iPod mini

After several months of searching high and low, I’ve given up. I’m beginning to accept the fact that my green iPod mini is lost. I’ve looked everywhere, and have racked my brain trying to remember where I last saw it or used it. The odd thing is that I still have the docking cable. I always took the cable with me if I was going to be away from home for more than a normal day.

I think the thing I’m saddest about is the sentimental value of greenie. A2C gave me greenie when we were dating. I remember it was just before we got engaged. She had just returned from a trip overseas. We were hanging out in her room, and were catching up and talking about things. I told her I loved her, and she replied as she always does with, “You do?”. Only this time, she continued, “Oh good, then I have something for you!”. She jumped up and began digging through her closet. In a few moments, she produced a new iPod mini and a protective case. I was floored, as it was a pretty extravagant gift (to me, anyway).

If I were to pick an iPod myself, it would have been green. It was so nice to have something I’d use all the time to remind me of A2C (not that I needed reminding or anything). I got lots of good years out of that iPod, and I must say, I think the minis are still my favorites. I’ve not tried out the nano (older or newer), and quite frankly, I’m not all that interested. Half due to the fact that I read more than listen on my daily commute these days, and half because I’m not so enamored of all things iPod as I once was. That being said, I’m slowly becoming more and more interested in the iPhone. Must… resist… temptation… shiny…

  • That is a very good reason for longing at the loss of your Greenie Mini. You MUST RESIST temptation of the iPhone, though. Please resist!
