This week, both my computer and my cell phone broke. My computer can’t connect to wireless. It just searches and searches, lamp held aloft, for an honest IP address. The cell phone acts like everything’s OK, and then it says it can’t find its smart chip. I don’t know about you, but there are a lot of things I can take from a wireless device, and passive aggression isn’t one of them.
All of this comes at the worst possible time, because I’m somewhat low on funds. The cash I would have spent on new gadgets is now sitting in the bottom of my closet, in the form of blue rubber shoes. (Judge me if you want. But I bet your life would be better with blue rubber shoes. Think about it.)
My point is that the electronic items in your house are just waiting for you to purchase kicky accessories. The moment you do, they’ll fail. You have been warned.
