My baby's gone!

Did I mention to you that I lost my mp3? I'm a jogger* and I need the music to distract me from my ragged breathing/wheezing and from thinking that there's nothing I want to do more in the whole wide world but stop running.

Anyway, my mp3 was one of the first things I ever bought from eBay. It wasn't the most expensive or top of the line and it didn't have much memory but it was mine and had great running tunes on it. I only needed enough space for a couple of hours worth of music... long enough for a warm-up, cool-down and 30-45 minute run. Does anyone really need 5000 songs and a tv? Seriously. Please post a comment to this blog if you can think of one good reason for all that. I've been alive since the late 60s and I don't think I've even heard 5000 songs.

The last time I saw my little yellow baby we were at the YMCA. I must have left it there. I checked the lost and found but nothing but used water bottles and mouldy towels. Geez, what are the odds? Did you know that the C in YMCA stands for Christian? I'm just saying.

So as a memorial to my Rio Cali 128 (the rubbery yellow one with the joggers armband) here are the tunes I had on it. I hope the "Christian" that's using it right now loves it as much as I did.

(* fair-weather only... no rain, snow, heat or cold will ever get me outside. I don't jog if it's under 1C or over 25C. I don't jog if it's foggy, early, late and turn around when the battery dies on my mp3. I've also been known not to jog if it's too windy LOL!)
