I bought this digital camera September of last year, but not just any digital camera, a Kodak (Wooo!). I had seen one of those things a couple of months before and remember thinking ‘that’s pretty cool’. What happened was in September, we had to get our house valued since we had to re-negotiate our mortgage rates. And the guy had this digital camera taking pictures of our house. And I was like “is that a digital camera?”. “It sure is” the man replies with confidence. “See, you can store pictures, flip back and fourth, delete, download directly to your computer”. I was like “that’s REALLY cool!!”.
As soon as I enter my house and start flipping through the channels, I come across the shopping network. Guess what was being featured. Yup, a Kodak digital camera. Now I’m here all hyped and excited thinking ‘I’ve gotta have one!!’ Not only do you get software for your comp, it also comes with a free printer, and to top it all off, pay only $50 per month for 4 months. It was settled. It was going to be mine!!! After receiving the big boxy, bulky thing, I brought it out to a couple of gatherings and stuff. To mostly everybody’s surprise, they were like “Wow”, “What’s that?” and “that’s so cool”.
Now, only a year later, these digital cameras outnumber regular cameras and are almost everywhere I go. Not only is it everywhere, the one I have is grey (not silver) and boxy, it is the equivalent of those huge, big, grey darn ugly old cell phones.
But hey, I got a free cheap azz printer out of it.
