If you’re reading this post it’s because my Mac is currently being held hostage by the nice folks at the Apple Store. As of now I have no idea if this will actually happen but I have an appointment with the geniuses at the Genius Bar in about an hour and there’s always a good chance that they’re going to request that I leave my second child, I mean my Mac, at the store for a few days while they research all its issues.
There’s also a good chance that they’re going to say, “Hey. This computer is four years old. Maybe it’s time to cut your losses.” as they look at me like I smell bad because I’m not in there to buy a fancy new iPad 2.
And I’ll put on my most pitiful face and say, “Please, sir, I would love to buy an iPad 2 but we are currently focusing on things like groceries and air-conditioning bills and paying $75 to fill our cars with a half-tank of gas.”
And they’ll say, “NEXT?” as they escort me from the store.
This is all purely hypothetical of course.
I’m hoping they’ll say they can restore my computer to its former glory, back in the days when the keyboard wasn’t cracked and I could actually burn CDs and DVDs. But that will probably mean I’ll have to leave it behind.
And you may be wondering why I couldn’t just post on our other computer. That would be because we don’t own another computer because P maintains he doesn’t need a computer. Which is so weird since he seems to abduct mine on a regular basis.
Of course there’s always my iPhone. But if you think I can post on that thing then you have seriously overestimated my manual dexterity.
Y’all have a great day and I’ll be back when my computer has been liberated from the Apple Store.
