I Lost My Boombox
Sunday, March 31, 2013
See above, a picture of me with my favorite way to listen to sweet jams. I am a child of the 80's, and there's nothing better than bumping Bel Biv Devoe on your Ghetto Blaster, poolside. The only problem: The more rad your boombox is, the bigger and heavier it is. And it isn't as easy to carry it around on your shoulder as they make it look on TV. The totally awesome, ipod-docking, blue-tooth compatible model you see pictured above weighs in at a whopping 20 pounds! And I lost it.
Or rather, I lost its weight from my body. At today's weigh-in I crossed the 20 pound mark. 20.4 POUNDS! I can't believe it. I lifted that boombox, with it's 10 D Batteries, and I realized that I never again want to have that weight on me. I certainly don't want to have that boombox on my shoulder while I'm on the treadmill!
Goodbye 20 pounds. Hello Spring!
