New to harmonicas?

Well, winter break is coming up, so I decided to try to learn the harmonica. :) I've been reading up on some stuff, and I still don't know which type to get? Chromatic or diatonic? And which is better if I really get serious about playing? Thanks :)

Oh.. I'm not very musical, so please don't use too much music jargon. =)

Go with the diatonic. Here, this will keep you busy for a couple of years.
