Hello my favorite Mother that I looooove so much,
I was just doing some reminiscing tonight... and thinking about how 7 years ago, in May of 2003, I received an iPod just like this one from my amazing and awesome parents for my high school graduation.
Wouldn't it be SOOOO cool if in May of 2010 I received an iPad like this one from those same amazing parents for my law school graduation?!?!?!?
Your favorite beautiful wonderful smart talented soon to be lawyer daughter.
I have a feeling her response will be something along the lines of:
- Wow, you sure DO have some great and wonderful and amazing parents. You should thank them for all of that fancy education you've received!
- HAHA! You're funny.
- How many times do I have to tell you how broke we are right now? What is it going to take for you to understand this? What do you want more, for me to pay your mortgage, or an iPad?
Can't wait to see what she says...
Additional thoughts - I totally don't expect anything for my parents. They've already told me that they're giving me some cash that I can use to support myself through the summer while studying for the bar until
And that is MORE THAN generous. and I am very appreciative.
- dude, how cool was I for having that original iPod? I only knew one other person who had one at the time (and she's a very new reader to Legally Fabulous. HEYYYY Linds! I was totes jealous of you in high school when you got an iPod. I'm glad we're friends). and it was FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. How ridiculous is that? Oh, and also - my parents bought a FIVE YEAR extended warranty on the thing. I think that is so hilarious. In the 7 years since that iPod I've probably had 7 ipods (if you count the 2 iPhones). The fact that we actually thought I'd keep that one piece of equipment for 5 years is pretty hilarious.
Once again, well played Steve Jobs.
oh and seriously - iPad. I'm lusting. Hard. Need to get a big girl job ASAP so I can buy myself one, since I already begged and pleaded with Namby Pamby to buy me one and he said no, suggesting that I find myself a sugar daddy instead. As if I haven't been working on that already.
