The case of the iPod Nano

We are flying to Europe soon, and I was keep trying to convince JBQ to get a protective case for his 4th Gen iPod Nano. There’s no time now to go to Frys to get one, so I thought he will fly without a case.

I went to Longs pharmacy today to buy some masks (we will be changing 3 planes, so better safe than sorry), but they were out of them. In one of their baskets full of random items sold at 1/3 of their price there were some iPod cases (yes, sold at the Longs pharmacy). Anyways, they didn’t have any for the 4th Gen Nano, so I thought that this is it, JBQ won’t have a case for his player.

Fast forward 15 minutes. I was walking back home, when I literally stumbled into this, red color, perfect condition. In the middle of the street. I took it home, sanitized it, and it looks like JBQ will have a Nano case after all. It’s all kind of funny, really.

The protective cover came out of what I call a karmic hole.

Something similar happened to me in my youth. I desperately wanted a GameBoy, but my parents didn’t want to buy one. One day I just found a GameBoy on the street, with a frozen game of Tetris. I looked around, but there was noone on the street, so I took it. On my way back home I asked some kids if they knew something about a missing GameBoy, but no. I had a lot of fun with it until I gave it away to some younger relative.

Many years later my GBA SP vanished. I like to think it fell into the same karmic hole the other GameBoy came from and now some child who can’t have his own GBA has a lot of fun with it.

So someday another of your protective covers will vanish to help a traveller in need. Karma is a wonderful thing. 🙂
