So as I was walking to the bus stop one morning, I was listening to my crazy, decorated Ipod. I took a quick glance at the time, and realized I was late. I was about 4 blocks away and the bus was coming in two minutes.
Running as fast as my little bodyline shoes could carry me, I completely neglected the fact my headphones had fallen out of my ear and that my ipod nano was just a bump away from slipping out of my pocket.
As I approached the bus stop, I saw that the bus was just pulling up, and I started to run faster.
I quickly looked both ways , and sprinted across the street, and heard a little clink noise behind me, but in my frenzy to catch the bus, I ignored it.
I managed to get onto the bus. I said hi to the bus driver, apologized for being late, then went off to take my seat.
As the bus was pulling up to my stop, I remembered that I had left my ipod on. Quickly, I reached into my pocket.
And it was gone.
So for the rest of the day, I wandered around to my classes mindlessly, wondering where my ipod went.
And so at the end of the day, frustrated that I had lost my ipod nano, walked back to the bus and took a seat.
After I had gotten off the bus, I took off in the direction of my house, across the street.
Then I had noticed something sparkling in the middle of the road.
In hopes that it was my Ipod, I ran towards it.
And it was.
I ended up disappointed though.
The jewels and little cake stickers had fallen off and were scattered everywhere along the road, like broken glass.
At that moment, I had started to doubt my excitement. Would it even turn on?
As I walked home, checking my ipod for damage, I noticed there were only 2 dents.
One on the corner of my ipod, and a small crack in the corner of the screen.
Most of the jewels had fallen off, others were hanging by a thread.
As I got home and kicked off my shoes, my mother came up to me and said, 'Oh, I bought you a 10$ I tunes gift card'.
I said thanks, not wanting to say anything about my ipod nano, and ran upstairs to turn on my laptop.
I plugged in my ipod nano.
And to my ecstatic surprise..
I literally fell out of my bed.
After taking it to an apple store just in case, I found out that the decoden actually padded it a bit and made it harder to break.
And that, is the tale of how decoden saved my ipod.
