When I decided a few months ago that this blog would be a thing-thing, I also decided that I would need to graduate from taking all my photos on the iPhone, and start taking them on a camera. Higher quality, and more permanence.
Side note: I’d really really to get a real camera for the blog, and some real photos taken of me, but we’ll get there when we get there.
So two weeks ago, when I was headed to DC, I begged the husband-to-be to use his camera so I could take a few pictures when I ran up to the Capitol Building and ran around and stuff. He obliged, but before he handed it to me, he said, “Please make sure I get this back in one piece.” OF COURSE I will, why would I not bring it back in one piece?!
Which he gladly obliged by dropping the camera on the floor.
The camera that I’d promised would be returned in one piece was now 100% broken, and I had to figure out how to make it right.
As soon as I got back from DC, I Google it. Camera was discontinued. Great.
I logged into my Amazon, and found that there was exactly one of these discontinued cameras left in the right model and right color. So I bought it and sat in wait.
And waited. And waited by the window until it arrived yesterday.
“Babe I have to tell you something,” I said.
And I pulled both of these out.
I explained to him what I’d done, and that in wanting to make it right, I’d ended up replacing the camera. And luckily for us, the memory card and the batteries were still good, so all of the picture were unharmed. No harm, no foul, and I’d taken responsibility for what I’d done.
Now your turn! What’s the most thing you’ve ever lost/broken?
