At the start of May, my friends and family as they always do started to ask me what I wanted for my birthday. Every year I tell them the same thing, that I really don't want anything, and I'd be just perfectly happy going out to dinner with everyone and having a nice meal. This year though, Woot, I thought about it and decided to get myself a little something.
At first I thought I might have wanted a Nintendo Wii, but after much thought and consideration, I decided I didn't really need one. there would really only be one or two games I would play, and the exercise bundle at about 400-500 dollars was far too expensive of an investment to get involved with that would likely be replaced by the newest hottest thing soon enough. Besides, I was perfectly contented without one.
After a few more days of deep thought and contemplation, I decided it would be nice to be able to replace the small 1G iPod I had gotten free a few years ago, but had recently disappeared into the vast vacuum of nothingness where lost objects reside around Christmas. Lo and behold, woot comes through and delivers with a Sansa Fuze 4GB Media Player with an expandable memory slot that not only does music but video too! It was love at first sight and I pulled the trigger after reading all the great reviews on it.
What I wanted, what I REALLY wanted, was a little Roomba to call my own. I'd seen them on previous Woot-offs, but before I could get a good look at it and see if it was truely what I wanted, they would be sucked up by the masses faster than they themselves can suck up dirt. I then saw one on Sellout.Woot not too long ago for the right price. I needed to sign up for this, and that, and use points or something from another sight and a bunch of other nonsense. The hassle involved in getting that one was far too much to go through.
This morning Woot, today, the very day of my Birthday, I broke my normal routine of checking on you before breakfast and then going about my business. No, this morning was special. I woke up and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with my Grandparents consisting of light and fluffy homemade from scratch Belgian waffles of extraordinary deliciousness smothered and covered in blueberry syrup, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries and topped with whipped cream. Glowing with an aura of contentment, Woot, I came to you.
I think you can guess how this story ends, you've completely made my birthday this year, now I only need to find the patience to wait for my present to get here. I shall call him, Roombie~ <3
