I WISH this were a nursery rhyme, but what really happened was................
I spilled my coffee.
ALL OVER MY LAPTOP KEYBOARD.
Fortunately, my reflexes responded quickly.
With no hesitation,
I picked up my laptop and turned it over,
soaking up everything that I could with a paper towel.
All of this, while continuing the conversation (unpaused) on the phone with my mom,
who was completely unaware of the situation.
At first, my computer seemed fine.
Until, I realized my mouse was not working.
Then, I discovered the letter "w" was not working, either.
As it turns out, I use my "w" quite a bit.
A friend of mine kindly offered to take my laptop to the computer repair shop,
and informed me that it could cost $160.00 to have it repaired.
I don't recall anyone having to pay any money in Nursery Rhymes.
Can't the cat just play the fiddle and make it all right?
Here is MY version of "Hey, Diddle, Diddle" -
Hey, Diddle, Diddle
The Cat and the Fiddle
The Cow jumped over the house.
The "Little Dog" (spilled her coffee), and gasped at the sight
And the "w" ran away with the mouse.
The "duck" said, "Quack, quack!
To get the "w" and mouse back,
just show me the money.......... honey."
And was told (from now on), to drink de-caf, instead.
But, "the dog" did not think that was funny.
