I know it was only a couple of days ago that I professed my dunciness with regard to math, but even I can see this doesn’t add up.
4 days ago I brought my computer in to be fixed. How long will it take, I asked. 1 day, they said.
Perfect. ‘Cause the last place I went to said it would take 3-5 days.
Did I mention that was 4 days ago? And I still don’t have my computer? Friday + Saturday + Sunday + Monday = 4 days. Not 1 day. Not even if you factor in the remote possibility of time travelling could that be considered 1 day. No call, no explanation, no nothin’.
To be fair I must state that the gentleman who was fixing my computer says he tells people that if their computers are so important to them that they can’t be without them for a few days they should own 2 of them.
He’s saying this to someone who doesn’t even own a spare house key.
This got me to thinking. This guy might be right. I mean, I have 2 cats and THAT has worked out very well because last summer one of them had to stay overnight at the vet. I was comforted to have the spare cat at home with me during those days. But I found my spare cat on my front porch one day. A new laptop would cost a couple grand.
But this guy must know what he’s talking about. I mean, he owns a business and his shirt was buttoned up properly and everything so …
I decided I should give his theory some serious thought and started to look around to decide exactly what I couldn’t live without on a daily basis. What I might need 2 of, as he so logically suggested.
My Macbook Pro. Duh. Obviously. I’m writin’ the cheque as we speak.
My car. It only makes sense to have a spare one of these.
My house is also very important to me and I have no idea what I’d do it IT were to go missing for a few days. I should probably pick up another one.
My boyfriend is quite important to me as well. If I plan on getting a spare one it’s gonna cost a lot in terms of extra Christmas and Birthday presents.
My nose. I had a sinus infection a year ago and I couldn’t smell a thing for months. Dude was right. If I had only picked up a spare nose the problems I encountered while making what may be the blandest batch of chili sauce in history would have been eliminated with one good sniff. I’m starting to think this guy’s a genius.
My camera. No camera, no pictures for the blog. Which as you can see is pretty boring. Totally need to get another camera in case mine goes on the blink. Truth be told, the camera belongs to my boyfriend, so if I were smart, I’d make sure “New Boyfriend” has a camera as well. Two birds, one stone and all that stuff.
My right elbow! One relies on their right elbow wayyyy more than one would ever imagine. Additional prosthetic elbow. STAT!
Well that’s a good start to the list anyway. I’m quickly writing this particular post on my boyfriend’s laptop by the way. All the pictures for this week’s posts are on MY computer. So if I want to make this post more compelling, with photos, like I normally do, I’m going to have to pick a random picture off of his hard drive. And here we go …
What you are probably now shielding your eyes from, is one of 2 pictures my boyfriend has of me on his computer. It is the more attractive of the two. I think it goes without saying that I need my computer back. Even more STAT than I need a prosthetic right elbow.
I pray that by tomorrow everything will be back to normal. For obvious reasons. For fear of having to post the even uglier photo.
