If you ever wondered how to garner attention from complete strangers, in the
form of compliments, praise, accolades, well I know just the way!
With our son's Mac Computer in hand and travelling via subway and city sidewalk, we headed to the Apple store for updates that had been requested via a letter from Apple. The cool part too was our son had received notification for such via an email from Apple, while he was residing in South Korea for one year. Our son then let us know of the notification and set up our appointment with Apple at the Eaton's Centre, Toronto, from his lap top in Namyangju, from half way across the world.
Carrying the 27" screen was a little cumbersome, but as we went along it didn't seem as bad as we were high fived, and given notable praise and instant friendly greetings by the world of fans of Apple!
It felt like we were a tv ad and it would have been a great one too! For all anyone knew it could have been just the box itself and having realized that, thought, "HEY, maybe I'll come into the city with JUST the MAC BOX!" and do a little social study! It was a real "boost" for the ol' ego, everywhere we went we got noticed...or should I say the MAC did!
"HEY great choice of computer!"
"Wow, lucky new owners of a Mac!!"
"You're going to love your choice!"
"Hey you got a mac, you made the right decision!"
There was one high five given, many big smiles, numerous "thumbs up", and people who noticed as they passed by and then did a 360 turn to be sure to congratulate us on what appeared to be our new purchase!

I don't think I've ever carried my cell phone in my bra; well perhaps once. It just seems awkward and not very practical; especia...
When something truly awful suddenly becomes the lesser of evils because you've experienced something of the unimaginable and survived it...
