The Domino Effect
One thing always leads to another. Sometimes the scenario though can be a bit extreme. You know, like when you plan a simple trip to the supermarket for some ice cream but then suddenly find yourself giving a police officer a blow job in his cop car so he doesn't give you a ticket for jay walking (what!? don't act like that never happens to you!). In this instance things could only get messy if the blowjob occurs AFTER you get the ice cream. I mean, who wants to deal with a melted gallon of Rocky Road? (ooh, and lets not even mention the messy face afterwards!)
Anyhoo, the other day a random act of kindness somehow managed to turn into a $1500 shopping spree. My Gym Sister recently moved into a new apartment. Unfortunately he doesn't have much furniture yet. I had an extra DVD player and stereo sytsem I offered to him. We were at the gym the gym when I mentioned this and I still had to finish my workout and get home so I could study. I told him I could drop off the stuff but we had to hurry! Well, during the rush to get everything done I careless threw my iPod in my gym bag along with my OPEN bottle water. Needless to say my iPod got VERY wet and died.
The good news is my friend has a new DVD player and stereo. Well, I cannot live without my iPod so I saw this as an opportunity to upgrade to the new 160GB version. I rushed home after my emergency trip to the Apple store only to discover that the new iPods are not compatible with the old Mac operating system installed on my computer.
So began to plan another emergency trip to Apple store to fork out the $100 for the new operating system software. I had been meaning to update my system anyways. Well, as I was ready to make my purchase it occured to me that my 5 year old computer with it's already limited memory and disk space may not handle an upgrade very well.
So I just said fuck and bought a whole god damn new computer.
I will have to let my Gym Sister know the next time I see him just how expensive our friendship is, LOL.
