The iPad I got but never wanted

MY MOM and MY DAD had matching iPads. They got them in June before MY MOM retired and used them for lots of things. Like Oprah, MY MOM loved the scrabble app. (I do too and will gladly play at any time).

As you, loyal reader might recall, the iPad was on the list of things wanted but certainly didn’t need.

Yet, now I find myself typing this post on MY MOM’s iPad which is now my iPad. I never thought it would happen that I would inherit an ipad under these circumstances. I know MY MOM would want me to have it. THE DIVA completely agrees. Thereby I have the most bittersweet iPad known to humankind.

I would prefer not to have an iPad and have MY MOM instead. That’s the real truth.
