After having a temper tantrum in front of Natalie she had mercy on me and went on her own quest for the lost power cord. My wonderful wife went to Best Buy and told them my saga, but again there was no power cord for sale. One of the associates looked around the back room and actually found an orphan cord and sent it home with her. My hero showed up with the new cord, but it did not fix my cd player. Again I was sad, but my wife happened across the Wii and low and behold its cord actually fit my cd player. I turned on my music and did a happy dance for Natalie.
Granted I still had Pandora and my Walkman while I was searching for the cord, but I wanted control of my music. I know some of you are wondering why I just don't go completely digital? I like my cds, I like my cd player. Now, I just need a new cord for the Wii.
