You guys, i have been sobbing for the last 2 hours. I've finally managed to come onto the computer. . . . . . ..My mom washed my Shuffle. Tonight was the first time in years I've fought with my mom...violently. Of course it doesn't show any signs of life. My $80 in-ear headphones also went for a swim, but survived. If you remember, my 3G ipod died just 2 weeks ago when the screen cracked. I feel like my only 2 children have died in one month. I'm now iPodless and deeply depressed. I have that deep lump in my throat and on the verge of tears. I need your condolences in my time of sorrow.
