This post is coming to you live from a public library computer.
I'd like to think of it as being on location.
I am supposed to be out getting a few books. I couldn’t help it that the poor computer was staring at me, come hithering me over to use it. Big sad monitor all lonely.
Be kind to your local technology. It’s a rule.
Do you think I need to join Bloggers Anonymous? Is this the first sign of a problem? Do you think….Aw hell….
Jimmy Crack Corn!
That’s right! Yes, this blog is a guilty pleasure for me. I admit it. There.
Admitted it- First step.
Not giving a crap-Second step.
Now go chase someone with a real problem.
Not shaking this vice. Can’t make me. No matter how many frowns I may get because I shoved some poor soul out of my way so that I could use the computer first.
She probably has insurance.
Anyway, I have always been of the school –Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you cry alone. Well the other day, I lost it over lint and I could swear that the cat got a little misty. No longer holds water.
And before becoming a mom, whenever I would hear a mother yelling at a child in the store or at the park I would wonder- Now what kind of a woman yells at her kid that way?
Now seven years into it, when I hear a mother yelling in the store or at the park I wonder Now what the hell did that kid do to their mother to make her have to scream like that. Tsk tsk.
‘Ahem…. excuse, me but there are several patrons waiting to use this computer.’
The librarian gently nudges.
Uh helloooo, typing here! ‘Yeah, okay, I’ll be off in a sec.’
So as I was saying…
‘You’ve been on here for quite a while. I think that it is time for someone else to take a turn’ One of the patrons pointed out.
Hmm...Now how would a healthy well-balanced individual have responded?
How the hell should I know?
That's ok, I've been kicked out of better.
Whew! Thank God for my laptop!
