Tuesday, June 10th, marked my sixth year with a certain fruit-flavored computer company. And on that day, I was so busy selling fruit-flavored goodness and using my very cool fruit-flavored computer(s) (*sigh*), iPod, and phone, that I completely forgot the anniversary.
In honor of the occasion, please allow me to borrow from Matthew Lickona’s blog the following discussion:
Q: What has been the most memorable pop culture moment of your lifetime?
A: June 10, 2002, the day I was hired by the aforementioned fruit-flavored company. I hadn’t used one of their computers since (*gah*) 1987. (!) But that day in ’02 changed my life. And then, less than a month later, I won a collectible set of “Here’s to the Crazy Ones”** posters. And a couple months after that, I won my first iPod. Again – life changing.
And how about you, dear reader? What has been the most memorable pop culture moment of your lifetime?
**The demi-poetry mentioned on wikipedia, “Here’s to the Crazy Ones,” is still, to this day, written on the walls at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, CA. Every time I’m there, I stand in awe. “Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who actually do.” And some days, most days, I think I might be able to change the world, too.
