It’s here, the giant iMac, I picked it up today.
Joelle: “Aren’t you going to the Post Office?”
Brent: “Why? The tracking says it’s still in New York”
Joelle: “Honey, I think it’s not going to get updated again. I think that’s the NY FPO — it’ll just be here.”
Brent: “You think so really?”
Brent: “Ok, I’m going to go.”
10 Minutes pass as I drive out to the Navy side with Moka, I figured why not just take her with me. I get 2 yellow slips for packages and I’m trying not to be to excited.
The guy brings out the first box, it’s just a little one, I was thinking coffee. The next box is gigantic and looks promising…the guy tells me, “it’s heavy.” I wrestled it out to my car and as I’m fumbling for my keys I notice the B&H tape on the seams of the box. I’m trying not to be too excited, after all it could be Joelle’s iLife software I ordered at the same time…right?
The box is in the car and the next 15 minutes are the most agonizingly slow and I am behind the slowest drivers on the base. At least school isn’t in session so I can go 40 through there instead of the normal 25, remember, I’m in Japan, that is 25 kph (kilometers per hour)…that’s like 16 miles per hour or something.
I made it to the house with the computer and it’s already set up. My screen…ya…it’s huge…in fact, maybe even gigantic. I have to actually move my head to see from one side of my screen to the other. I wish I had my pictures on so I could see them but that’ll have to wait. Poor me, I have to work tonight, and tomorrow night. It’ll have to wait until Wednesday afternoon, but it’s something to look forward to. I might not even come home and sleep after my watch on Wednesday morning… Maybe I’ll just come home and play with my new computer.
Wow, B&H Photo is super fast.
(Shout out to Aviva for suggesting I try them since Mac won’t ship to us here.)
