The Little Nano who could

Once upon a time there was a brave little Nano...
It lived with its loyal companion in a beautiful kingdom in Northern Utah. Each day the Nano would accompany her to school, on long journeys, and in her sports bra while she ran. One day, that girl got married and the girl's husband would take little Nano to work to drowned out the mind numbing sounds of his coworkers foolish jabberings and foul tongues. One day, while traveling to school Nano got shoved under some evil textbooks in the man's backpack and the little Nano's screen was cracked. Bruised, beaten, scratched and scarred, the little Nano didn't know how much longer he could hold on and began to lose his charge. "Oh, no! Whatever shall I do? Surely no one will want me now. I wish there was a way to upgrade." said the little Nano. Just then, a talking apple appeared in the sky and said, "Nano, Nano! It's me, your fruity godmother. Your wish shall be granted." The little Nano cried out, "How is this so? You know my owners are poor and can't afford any of your new products. Is it magic? Is it theft? Is it a government bailout?" The giant fruit in the sky looked down at the little Nano and smiled, "No, it's nothing like that. You see, your brother, the one in Chicago, had a little problem controlling his temper and his battery blew up. My boss figured that it must all run in the family so hey, that's why I am here today. Corporate calls it a product recall." And with a two-fingered swipe across the mouse pad the little Nano was whisked away for a 4-6 week program. When he returned, Nano was smaller and stronger than ever. He had gained 6gb of memory, had a new screen that could be controlled by touch and now has a special clip so it won't have to travel inside a bra ever again.

And they lived happily ever after (hopefully... for 7 more years until there is another recall and she can get it updated again on the free.)

The End.

Amber, I could hardly stop laughing! (Of course you already know this since I read it right in front of you!)
@Steph It certainly is! And now your "fruity tale" can come true too!
