I try to post a funny story biweekly that bears some resemblance to the events as they happened. Well, yours truly, aka the supreme Luddite, just upgraded from a five-year-old desktop computer to a brand new laptop which I blissfully thought would make everything I know portable. Silly me—I never gave a thought to the fact that almost all of my software dates from 1997.
As MyHusbandTheEngineer dutifully installed the new computer and software, he gently broke it to me, program by program, that pretty much NOTHING I used before would work now.
After two weeks of sheer HELL I’m happy to report that:
- I’m still married;
- I have boosted the economy by pouring beaucoup bucks into my local Barnes and Noble store because I couldn’t wait for all those Dummies books to arrive from Amazon;
- and, I am re-entering polite society now that I can curb my verbal outbursts of total frustration and anxiety.
I wish I could find the humor in the past two weeks—it would make one heck of a story.
