Today at work we had a contractor’s appreciation cookout. I spent 7 hours on the phone calling contractor’s to see if they’d be attending.
My cheeks hurt. Holding the phone next to my face for 7 hours can end up being painful. I said for next year I wanted a La-Z-Boy and a blue tooth!
I probably called about 400 people yesterday and 90 the day before. Yeouch.
So, today was the cookout. I wanted to be out with everyone and try to connect faces to the voices I spoke to. Kind of like us bloggers who are so giddy when we know we’ll get to meet face to face.
At the very end of the cookout, we’re breaking down all the tables, taking the tools back into the store, etc and I walk by one of the contractor reps I had made calls for. He was talking to one of his contractors.
My eyes glance down at the table and what do I see?
I interrupted their conversation to ask him if that black square thing was what I thought it was! He said yes and asked me if I wanted to check it out. I totally techno geeked on him!
CHECK. IT. OUT. PEOPLE!!
Not a nanosecond went by and I grabbed that baby. Okay, I didn’t “grab” it. I held it preciously in my grubby little hands tipping it horizontally then vertically.
Sure, I’ve seen the ipad online all over the place, but didn’t really “get” what all the hype was.
It was soooo cool. We did this planet earth app (no idea of the real name) and he let me hold it while he swiped his fingers across it and zoomed in on our exact location!! I mean, I saw my store close up!
Then he opened his Facebook app. If my boss’ hadn’t been standing there I would’ve totally updated my status to let everyone know how cool I was! tee hee hee He didn’t have a Twitter app so I was a bit disappointed
Oh man, now I know what the next gadget is that I want to get. I’d get the wireless one. Actually, it’ll be my next gadget after I get a laptop. That could be close to never since currently all I can do is put food on the table and gas in the van. LOL
Big shout out to Tom for being so kind to let me touch his su-weet ipad! You rock dude!
So, if any company (ahem, Apple) sees how tweeked I am about the ipad and you’d like me to review it, just let me know! True, I have less than 200 followers, but I’d do a fantastic review! Come on, be a sport.
