I was invited to the party
I had my dress
But I stayed away from the lines and hooplah.
I did itch to join in the fun from a distance
With just a camera
But the day was filled with activity
And I tried to remain present
In the crowded mall on a Saturday night,
With 15 minutes before Greenberg
My window of opportunity opened
And I shot down the escalators
For Apple on the ground floor
Passing Aunt Annie’s Pretzels,
Bed, Bath and Beyond…
I arrived to the remnants of the
But only the rope lines outside the store now.
Inside familiar Mac Geek faces watched
Crowds covering the tables
Gingerly connecting with the well anchored Pads
Instantly welcomed VIP style,
led to a free Pad viewer
encouraged to touch away.
Yes, the Pad felt good in my hands,
Really good in my hands
I played for10 of my 15 minutes
chatted about the day with Tom
And exited-smiling, knowing
I will be back for mine!
