An article in the WSJ “Personal Journal” section today talked about different gadgets for recharging your vital gadgets in cases of emergency. It reviewed various types of chargers for cell phones and weather radios – even devices with a hand crank on them. What got me was included in this review of ’emergency kit’ chargers was a device to recharge your iPod mini. C’mon… your iPod mini is part of your emergency kit?
Me: “Sweetie – where’s the flashlight? I can’t find it in our emergency kit.”
Tammy: “Oh, I took it out so I could stick my iPod in there.”
Note to self: check emergency kit when I get home.
