How can you put a price on memories?

I walked into the Apple store with my eyes wide, searching for my new lap top. I had already done quite a bit of research and knew I wanted a new 13-inch  Mac Book Pro. My only question was regarding the core 5 vs core 7 processor. (I know you all are dying to know what I picked, it was the core 5. )

But now that I’m sitting home, writing this on my new laptop and I can’t help but feel bad for my ol’ Bessie. I mean she helped me get through some of the best times of my life (so far, obviously better times are lookin’ ahead.)  I wrote my first attempt at a novel, my first college essay, my last college essay, fell in love with blogging, dove head first into the world of online dating..so many memories.

And now my dear friend is being brushed aside for a new shiny model, and it is really shiny. I’ve been trying to get used to the new typing, better speed, and really intense glossy screen (like sometimes I can’t even focus, instead I just watch myself or what is happening behind me). It’s just not the same with out my Ol’ good luck charm with me.

The thing is, I want to sell her, scratch that I need to sell her. If mama’s gonna pay the bills then she needs to start making some sort of dough. But I’m just not sure how I’ll be able to part with her.

How can I put a price on all of the college memories we shared?

(on a side note, anyone interested in a 15-inch Macbook pro from 2007feel free to comment with your best offer)
