As You Do

  1. Go on the road and bring microphone with you, because you have to record a podcast
  2. Realize it’s a USB mic, but your new laptop only has USB-C
  3. Buy adapters on Amazon, and have shipped overnight
  4. Realize you’ve set up mail forwarding, so adapters will be re-routed
  5. Buy adapters again, and ship to address that won’t forward but you can still recieve
