Have you ever met a complete stranger, because they saw your apple logo? Anyone have a personal story that somehow started with an apple logo ?
I put my apple sticker on the rear window of my vehicles, for several years now, and have had several strangers say "Ahh you're a "Mac guy eh?" (The "eh" part cause i live in canada)
However... once I met a pretty girl in the parkinglot of the Fido / Bongo Java on 21st ave in Nashville.
I was putting a tray of coffee on the passenger seat in my car for the lads at the studio, and as I walked around the back of the vehicle, a beautiful, sweet, young woman said to me... "I just bought an iMac last week, and i've actually fallen in love with a computer... I can't wait to get back home to it"
I was going to marry her right there, however.. we chatted about life, and art, and music, and how much computers have integrated into all of that, and how much more "Creative" the mac working environment was then windows.
She gave me her e-mail address, and I told her I'd e-mail her as soon as I got home, and we could continue our conversation over coffee, and spend some time, where I didn't have to go (The boys were waiting at the studio for me).
As soon as I got back to the studio, I went into the office, to log onto my e-mail, and mail her before the night got away on me, her e-mail address safely, and firmly wedged between the cream and sugar on the coffee tray.
Bass player walks in... grabs coffee... squeezes too hard... pops lid off, and squeezes half the coffee out, over the desk, tray, cream, sugar, HER E-MAIL.
couldn't be read... I tried light chalk... scanning and blowing up, adjusting gamma... it was soaked, and ruined.
Never got to e-mail her... I'd hang at that coffee shop as much as i could, that whole summer, hoping to run Into her... never did.
that was 2 years ago.
so now... the apple logo on my car has "I lost your e-mail" written inside it.
