My new best friend

You know how sometimes you meet someone and you know you're going to be friends. There's no rhyme or reason really, maybe it's the way the person says hi, the initial conversation, or you find a unique bond. Like, "Yes, I love to read books about monkeys who turn into people too!"

Well, I walked into the store, and it was like we knew each other immediately. I could tell, "Wow, we're going to be best friends." So I plopped down my debit card and we walked out of the store together.

My new friend is so intuitive, he knows what I want to do and what my limitations are. Like he automatically knew that I don't like to read manuals, and guess what, there's not really a manual here, just a friendly little quick start guide. It's so refreshing not to have to wade through pages and pages to find out how to turn the thing on/off.

And my new best friend plays well with my other good friend, my computer. There were no awkward introductions, trying to find ways for them to get along. They got along famously and I didn't have to intervene to try and make conversation, like "Well, you both like people with brown eyes (me), don't you?".

I am so excited about my new best friend. I can't wait to take him in the car and we can really go. I'm so excited to get rid of the last of my CDs.

Life is so good with my new best friend.

BTW, I'm not a total newbie to digital music. I've had iTunes on my computer for a while, and actually had an old MP3 player back in the late 90s that looked something like this.

Talk about unfriendly! We weren't compatible at all. We never understood eachother. I think he ended up at my friend's garage sale. He was a dick!
