I had a book in my bag so I read that while I attempted to block out the cacophony of city morning sounds.

When I reached downtown and was walking to the corner to cross the street, I noticed a woman from the corner of my eye that seemed familiar to me, so I turned to look.

As I watched her a thoughts were streaming through my mind like “wow, that is a sharp-looking outfit”, “I like the tight white pants and white shirt combo”, “fabulous red heels”, “she’s walking like she knows how great she looks”, “where do I know her from?”, “I love that natural nappy hair she’s sporting”…and so on and so on.

While lost in my thoughts I suddenly hear a male voice say “You’re cuter”.

I snap my focus to my immediate front view and who do I see?

A short man with milky eyes using a cane to “see” where he’s going.  I know there are various stages of legally blind but still….

  1. I just sold 2 iPods, 1 nano, and 2 iPhones on eBay and made tons of mula!!! Cracked, used, terrible aesthetics yet working condition (except for 1 of the iPhones which was totally dead)! Who woulda’ thought that anyone cared for my junk? 😀

    What a fun story! We have the same Ipod. The smallest one..only mines in red.

    1. I actually have the iPod Touch now which replaced my hot pink iPod classic cause it was full and I didn’t want to delete anything on it:)
