I walk by Lenore with a plastic bag full of strawberries (which has very little to do with this story) when she stops me.
Lenore: (seeing strawberries) Hey mister, I just love strawberries. But what I wanted to ask you is about music.
L: Do you have a radio or something in your office? You always have music playing and I thought you were playing, you know, a radio or something like a radio.
Me: No, it's my computer.
L: Do you have a radio on your computer?
Me: I use iTunes. I can listen to the radio or just music from my playlist if I want.
L: What's, tunes?
L: Yeah, what is your tunes?
Me: No, it's called eye-Tunes, like an eye-Pod.
L: Oh, I want to get one of those. Are they like radios?
Me: Not really. But they play music like a walkman.
L: Well, walkmans have radios on them. That's what I want. I want to listen to music at my desk.
Me: Just download iTunes on your computer and you'll be able to play music.
L: I don't know how to do that.
Me: It's easy.
(Later, while I'm downloading iTunes on Lenore's computer she turns to Richard, in the cubical over from hers.)
L: (pointing to me) He's downloading a program to play radio music on my computer.
Richard: Oh, like iTunes?
L: Yes, they're going to be my tunes, though. I want to listen to Josh Groban.
