I was on my way to the shop near work to get myself a fruit juice, actually the real reason was to get out of the office for a few minutes to revitalise my flagging morale, and I saw one of those sandwich boards that are used for on-pavement advertising. This one happened to be for Cornetto. Anyway, I just glanced at it really as I was walking past, it was some kind of promotion for vanilla Cornetto with a competition attached to win an MP3 player. I remember thinking to myself that “that would be handy”, not for me but for The All Knowing I, who is still using a portable CD player. However the thing is on the blink and seeing as you can’t buy them in the shops anymore, trust me we have looked, it appears The All Knowing I just might have to embrace this fandangled new technology after all.
…..“eeerm you just won yourself an MP3 player” was the response. Well, that’s all well and good I thought to myself but what I really wanted was an ice-cream! The nice chap gave me one after all. And The All Knowing I will be getting the Samsung Pebble MP3 player which according to the website has… “Very high quality sound, and it also leaves off on your last song and the exact place that you stopped at, the batteries last forever. The only downside is that there is no screen. If you want a good MP3 player, walk past the Ipod Shuffle, and spend a few dollars less and get the better quality MP3 player.”
Maybe I will start playing the Lotto after all.
