When Jacoby and I went to the Apple Store, I took some Hipstamatic photos of him on the red line train.
I love how riding the T is No Big Deal to him.
Jake was so happy to be back in his stroller!
He could not stop rubbing and head butting it.
He could do without the really screechy wheels, though.
He may look like a typical, blase commuter…
…but he can be as outraged at the T’s service as any Bostonian. This is why we’ll never get the Olympics.
This was an awesome little thing that happened when Jacoby and I were walking home from the Apple Store last month.
We were walking down Boylston Street and saw a little boy in a stroller out with his mother and aunt.
The boy saw Jake in his stroller and started to wave at him!
His mom and aunt thought it was so cute that the boy recognised that the kitty was in a stroller just like he was.
I asked if he wanted to pet Jake, and they thought he might, so I pushed his stroller closer to the boy’s stroller.
He was a very nice, gentle boy, and of course Jake was so patient.
If anything, I think Jake wanted the boy to pet him harder. He was giving Jake those soft, tentative pats and Jake wanted some nice, heavy petting.
I love watching Jake interact with children, though. He has so little experience with them, but he’s always just so good!
The very first time Jacoby went to the Apple Store was back in 2011, when we went to get our brand new iPhone 3. It was a Massachusetts sales tax holiday, so everyone was trying to get a phone to save money, and we had to stand in line for a while.
That was his first, tiny stroller.
He seemed to enjoy himself.
And then, just for comparison, here we are on our most recent trip.
He still enjoys coming out on errands with me!
When you need to go to the Genius Bar at the Apple Store, you’re experiencing a multitude of emotions.
Of course, you’re totally stressed out and worried about your machine isn’t working right.
It’s almost like worrying about a sick loved one. Perhaps worse, since apart from AppleCare, your machine hasn’t got health insurance…which means it’s probably going to cost you.
Admittedly, there’s a certain thrill when you get to the Genius Bar.
And then, when you’re met and greeted by an Apple Store concierge, you feel so special.
But, once you’re checked in, you wait.
Of course I had to play with Hipstamatic while we were at the Apple Store.
I love the randomness of it.
It’s like in the old days, when I had a little Instamatic and used 126 Kodapak film.
Except, you know, you don’t have to pay for the film and the processing.
But the funny thing is, the same number of good photos come out regardless of whether you take 24 shots or 2,400.
I thought I would miss using film…but you know, I really don’t.
