iPod from Vons?

OK, so here I am at the grocery store a few minutes ago getting some beer, soap, and paper towels (can you tell I am a bachelor?). I am checking out, running through the 4 billion card swipes and touch screen steps, and start waiting for the card to get approved so I can get back home and enjoy my Cerveza.

The cash register starts beeping a bunch, the cashier goes "Oh, cool", picks up the paging phone thingie and goes "We have an iPod winner at checkout 5!". He turns to me and says "you just won an iPod".

Being the pessimistic guy I am, I figured it would be a mail in deal where I have to give them my life history and be entered into a crap-ton of marketing databases. Instead, a guy shows up, iPod in hand, and just wants me to sign a sheet showing I got it. Kind of stunned, I take it, sign the sheet, and walk out.

So now I have a shiny new iPod. It's only a shuffle, but I needed a new memory stick anyway, so now I am good to go!

Yeah, I am stuck with bottles right now because we tapped the Kegerator over the weekend, and I was gone on travel until late last night.

I think I will have to veryify this story for the .org. and make sure its not Let me know when a fresh barrel is going to be tapped so I can verify the existence of said kegerator.

Soap, beer, and an iPod...nothing else is needed.

I like Sheeps style.

But he speeks the truth. I bought an ipod with no intention of ever buying another apple product. Well, much cash later, I own an imac, shuffle, ipod goodies, airport extreme base station and a ton on music from itunes.
