I have been looking forward to a hike all by my lonesome all day today. All I wanted was to exercise and be one with nature and my IPOD. Finally the sun is setting and the weather is cooler so I make the time this evening to hike, alone. Lately I have gone with other people which is always nice but I was really really in the mood to jam to a little Journey, MJ and Gypsy Kings- alone.
I arrive to the parking lot and guess what? MY IPOD WAS DEAD. deceased . a goner. well not really.....just had no battery. But boy was I annoyed.
I know it sounds silly and I should've just trudged up that mountain and listened to the sounds of the wind and creatures rustling in the bushes but I couldn't do it. I had to turn around and go home to charge my freaking ipod. As if it was my lifeline. I don't even use it like some people do but because my heart was set on running with it I had to have it. NO time to go off course from the plan. No room for a detour. I had to do what I set out to do. Now I am home charging it...and I am sure when its charged I will be way too lazy to actually exercise. arghhhhhh
