What's a walkman?
5.2 miles in 30 degrees at 8am. My iPhone started playing the same songs as yesterday, but in reverse order. I'm still not used to using it as a walkman. That's right, I said it! I still use that term to describe any portable music device with a delivery system to the ears, or as I like to call them, "headphones". My 11 year old just looks at me funny when I say "walkman". I remember running with my chunky, bright yellow Sony walkman and fumbling it often because it was so big and awkward to hold, even with that strap. All I needed were my new wave mixed tapes and I was set. I do think the iPod was one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century. They're so lightweight in comparison to my old school Sony. And downloading almost any obscure one-hit-wonder? Fantastic! But, I also can't help being nostalgic once in a while.
