The other day, something we had often feared would happen did in fact occur. Our little home away from home not only lacks in lighting, but in outlets as well. There are no outlets in our “living room” except for one next to the desk. Our sofa is on the other side of the room, which means the power cord for the computer is often laying across the floor. So, a couple days ago, someone was using the computer. This person had to get up for some reason and set the computer on the sofa. Somehow, this persons foot got hooked on the cord and the computer fell to the floor. CRASH!
The computer has suffered minor cosmetic damage, a small crack above the screen on the corner. We have also been experiencing random shut downs, usually during the game of Zuma, which is rather unfortunate for a certain someone who is close to beating the game. It almost seems as if the computer begins to overheat, and sensing the danger, it shuts down to protect itself. Poor, poor 'puter.
So, who is to blame for this near disaster? Who would have taken away our main provider of entertainment, our blogging lifeline, our ability to write emails longer than a paragraph and read the epic tales that are sent our way? Was it one of the kids? They are rather clumsy little creatures. Or was it the wife, who once crashed into a car in her own driveway? And the man of the house who once lost a third of a finger in a 40 ton press at work. Could it have possibly been him? Who do you think is to blame?
