The morning started out with a beautiful warm and glowing sunrise. The kind that just takes your breath away. I got dressed and headed out to first and foremost, take care of a major prioity of mine... FINDING FOOD. I've got to have it or no one is safe around me until I get it. I would love to describe the feast for you but....., let's just say it was ridiculously outside of your normal two eggs, bacon, toast and coffee.
That's when I somehow, shook him off and took a deep and needed breath of O2. Finally, I felt a little better and made the decision to not remove my punctured and suffering tire at this location, but instead I chose to drive it gentlely to the nearest tire center for the required and unscheduled repair. After realizing that I had handled this situation with the upmost of southern class, I headed home and felt totally convence that I was back in control, of having the sort of day I envisioned earlier.
Thinking back, and while reliving the conversation I had with the tire repair guy, I suddenly began to laugh out loud. He told me, that I needed to relax because this type of thing happens to everybody. I curiously replied, "Oh really, you don't say". He firmly said yes, it could even happen to Santa Clause. Suddenly, my warped sense of humor kicked in and I immediately thought about what that must look like..... ummm.
Once I arrived at the house, I went straight upstairs to do some needed work on the home computer. I was just as busy as a beaver, when I saw this little flashing icon appear, that read... click here for some needed updates. Part of me said ignore it, stay on task, but guess who showed up again, sticking me over and over with that fork thingy, and then he proceeded to force my humble little right index finger, to click the mouse on the update tab. You're probably thinking by now and asking... "What are you smoking"? Maybe I should have been...Nahh!!, but there he was, standing right in front of me. Thats when everything just went crazy. The download turned out wack and obviously not capatible with my present operating system (what ever that is). It was like I was being transformed into that Dorothy girl who realized that she was not in Kansas anymore, and causing me to shout out words like... "Lions, Tigers and Bears..Oh My!!
Whew!!..., luckily I had the phone number to my computer hero (who lives in another time zone) and a warranty that was still valid. Fortunately for me and after 2 plus hours of patience, reassurance and customer care romancing, I got exactly what I deserved....
Hope the rest of the day went more smoothly.ReplyDelete
