Sometimes I wonder which one I'll get first. If I were a betting man, I would say that the iPod will arrive first if for no other reason that I'm getting sick of my damn cassette Walkman. I'm sick of recording CDs to tape for my walkman. But as previously stated, iPods don't have AM capability and I like to listen to baseball. With my current setup I can easily flip back and forth between music and the radio. I refuse to go the Chris Larry route of having two devices and then flipping back and forth with his headphones. I still refuse to go the route of a CD walkman because they don't fit in my pocket.

So how did I link these two seemingly disparate items in my mind? Let me count the ways.
Babies and iPods
They are both cute and small.
Both are fragile creatures.
It is reassuring to know that both are in my future.
I am in no real rush for either but I am looking forward to someday having both.
Undoubtedly, they will keep me up at night either because they are awake or because I will be planning things for it -- whether that entail trips to the park or what playlists to add, I can't be sure.
Even though I have a pretty good idea, I can't exactly be sure what color it will be upon arrival.
Don't think that I'm the only one with this crazy idea. I'm not the one who named her iPod "eggy" which means baby in Korean.

Now if I could only figure out how to somehow find a tenuous link between a dog and a flat screen high definition large ass television ...
