During the A-Z Challenge in April, I wrote a post about my long time running partner Emma the iPod.
Shortly after I wrote that post, I broke my Garmin watch included in the photo above. I was not emotionally attached to my Garmin, but it had accompanied me on all my runs and bike rides for the past several years. I confess that some of Husband’s techie-geeky side has worn off on me over the years and I simply could not run without my techie watch. It was finally replaced just a few weeks ago.
Disaster struck again this morning. Emma suffered terminal battery failure. It happened very suddenly and she didn’t suffer. I, on the other hand, am unconsolable. I still have her plugged into life support, hoping against all hope that she can be resuscitated.
In the meantime, I can’t help but wonder …. does disaster really strike in threes?
