apple story

I drove over to the Apple Store at Washington Square for the Mac OS X Tiger release party last night. I didn't have fullerton with me this time to talk to, but I had a conversation anyway.

It went something like this.

APPLE STORE (whispering): Enter me ... enter me ... enter me ...
LINE OF PEOPLE OUTSIDE APPLE STORE: OMG we have no life.
APPLE STORE (whispering): Enter me ... enter me ... enter me ...
CHIPPER APPLE STORE EMPLOYEE: Welcome to the Apple Store! Here's your ticket! Good luck!
TIM: Ticket?
APPLE STORE (whispering): Enter me ... enter me ... enter me ...
CHIPPER APPLE STORE EMPLOYEE: Uh-huh! Scratch and see if you got a prize! Good luck!
TIM: **notices huge scratch-off block on ticket** Oh, gotcha thanks. **enters store**
ENTIRE STORE FULL OF APPLE PRODUCTS: <3 <3 <3
TIM (homer drool): <3 <3 <3
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: Heh, heh.
TIM: What?
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: You drove all the way out here for me? Sucker.
TIM: Oh. Well, I guess I thought there'd be ...
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: What?
TIM: ... a, you know ...
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: What?
TIM (quietly): ... a sale.
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
ENTIRE STORE FULL OF APPLE PRODUCTS: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
TIM: **seethes**

SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: Aren't you gonna scratch me?
TIM: Dude, you'll be like one free iTunes song. Big whoop.
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: No way, come on. Some chick just won an iPod Photo over there.
TIM: Well, okay. **scratches**
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: **is one free iTunes song**
SCRATCH-OFF TICKET: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
ENTIRE STORE FULL OF APPLE PRODUCTS: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
TIM: **seethes**
