As this morning is a bit odd, to say the least, this is going to be a strange posting. To preface today’s oddity, the kids received iPod Touches for the winter holidays this year. Therefore, Gabriel is no longer using his burnt orange iPod shuffle, and I have inherited it. Until yesterday, the shuffle has sat on a shelf. I pulled it off and reset it. Being a UT Alum, I named the iPod the natural name for any burnt orange device, i.e. ‘Bevo’.
Today I am traveling from Cambridge through London on my way towards Reading for a company meeting. On the way, I decided to listen to some music. I see people doing it all the time, so what the heck. Well, I have to say it is quite bizarre to travel through Britain listening to Johnny Cash. For some reason, I felt like a fish out of water. Talking about surreal. Next time I’ll try a bit of Pink Floyd or the soundtrack to Trainspotting (oh yeah).
I hope your day twists like seeing Bevo in Britain… Guy
