The Ipod Blackhole

It was a long day today. The first day back after a long weekend always drags. At least tomorrow is Wednesday so the week is practically half over.

I spent a lot of time trying to think of a way to secure an ipod music player to a hospital bed. You see, I asked my niece if she would be willing to lend her ipod to her cousin who is in the hospital. She agreed and shipped it off. It arrived on Saturday and my nephew enjoyed almost 48 hours of music before it disappeared. Can you believe someone would steal an ipod from a sick boy's bedside? I just can't imagine who would do that. We have a new plan in the works that will hopefully get him another one. I hope this new one won't walk away too. I'm thinking dog leash and combination lock...maybe an alarm...or electrical shock...

Everything that is
- not cemented to the ground
- lighter than 8 tons
- not sizzling hot
gets stolen sooner or later.
(More severe sentences for recidivists...and world peace!)

What is the name of those metal loops for securing laptops?

That's terrible! Hopefully you guys will find a solution soon.

That disgusts me. I cannot believe someone would that. How can they live with themselves?!

Christine said...

that is terrible. Just get a simple MP3 player for 20-30 bucks and duck tape it to the bed rails. ;)

That is completely low down. Does he get to come home soon?

KoBold, I don't know what they are. I've never had a laptop...or an ipod.

Frugalchick, I think we've figured out a plan.

Middle Way, I can't imagine. Maybe there is a cleptomaniac who roams freely at night! Eek.

Christine, duct tape is an excellent idea, and frugal! I will pass that along.

Over the Cubicle, he will have another test tomorrow to see if he can try eating again. He has to be on solid food before he can get out so Monday would be the next possible discharge day.
