Camera Challenged...Again!

This time the culprit isn't Gilbert, it is Kristen! She dropped the brand new camera. The one we just bought when the other broke. Unbelievable.

The original was repaired and works perfectly, but it feels like driving a Yugo compared to the sleek features of our new camera. Smartly, Kristen purchased the white glove, black tie, bend-you-over plan that basically insures the camera against any catastrophy short of an Iranian invasion. No questions asked. It is the camera version of the rental car Collison Damage Waiver. On a side note whoever created that snappy policy was a genius. Otherwise I'd still be paying off the damage I did to my rental while in driving on the other side of the road in Scotland. I mean really, who in their right mind has raised curbs that are literally up against the white line!

She dropped the camera off with the Dork Squad at Best Buy and in four months time we'll get it back duct taped up and ready to go!

Just in time to break the other camera, I'm sure.

Easy on your wifey- like you never dropped anything!!! I saw her use it on Monday like a pro. BTW pretty fancy, like the shutter feature. I think we are going SLR route but after we pay for a new kitchen- so 2011?!?! And I feel lopsided- Stash would like this now being a lefty and all
