I would like to thank the gods of Apple who invented the iPod. And who made my kick-butt iPhone capable of playing music. It is this genius that gets me through the tedium of grocery shopping: navigating through mothers with screaming children, people who don’t know where they’re going (unfortunately, I’m often one of them), college kids who stand in the aisle figuring out who’s buying what…it’s much more interesting when you put it to music. Plus, you don’t have to listen to anyone yell at you when you piss them off!
And while we’re on the topic of the awesomeness of the iPhone, I love the calculator feature. Really. Grocery shopping on a budget is much easier when you keep track of the exact numbers as you go, instead of just rounding and adding them in your head.
So, thank you, gods of Apple, for your strokes of brilliance.
