Yesterday, my IT person took my Mac away because it refused to do my bidding. In fact, it did nothing at all. Mac just sat doing nothing and not making a sound, not even a beep. The silent treatment!
Mac and I were friends I thought. It was suppose to be reliable and would not let me down like those PCs. The place on my desk where it occupied left a hole not only on my desk but also in my heart (slight exaggeration!). I had my ipad, but you know it was not the same. Interestingly, before Mac started to let me down, first by responding slowly to my commands, then not at all, I enjoyed my ipad. I’d walk by Mac not giving it a second thought and sit by the fireplace content with my ipad. But then when it was no longer available I missed my Mac.
Seven hours later… Hubby “I know you said you didn’t want your anniversary gift yet, but under the circumstances would you like to have it now?” “Hmmm, okay” I replied. It will be our 18-wedding anniversary on the 11th. The suggested gift for this year is porcelain. When I unwrapped the gift I didn’t find porcelain (Not that there is anything wrong with porcelain, you know) what I found instead was light, airy and so adorable. A MacBook Air! So doing my happy dance now.
