Coffee and computers are my two best friends. As I learned today, best friends don’t always get along. My clear lesson for today:
“Coffee and Computers Don’t Mix!”
The day started out fine. A beautiful sunny day to work on the details of our upcoming adventure. Specifically we need to lock in place our Jordan tour guide and start the process for our Russia visas.
Other plans moving along. In a money saving effort, hubby and I agreed to cut down on our coffee consumption. If we to each spend $4 per day on a latte, the total coffee bill would equal $2,104. To avoid a caffeine headache we made a plan to cut down. Starting Feb 1, only one per day, starting March 1, one every second day, stopping completely the week before we go.
Today is Jan. 31, my last day of unlimited coffee. It was important so hubby created a masterpiece – the perfect latte.
It is a nice sunny day and fortunately hubby just fixed the deck umbrella. So up it went and my friend and I sat and enjoyed the day and our spectacular coffee.
She asked me a question, the answer to which was on my MacBook. Violating my normally pedantic “no coffee and computers” rule, I grabbed the laptop and set it on the table.
- A giant gust of wind appeared out of nowhere.
- The umbrella swung to one side then came back and closed down like a giant clam, grabbing my coffee cup.
- Then the umbrella turned my cup and poured the contents on my open Macbook.
- The Macbook shouted as the hot coffee seeped into its crevasses.
- The computer’s fan turned on to full speed to reject the coffee.
- The screen went dark.
And I was left sitting in the sun without coffee and computers. What a waste of a perfectly good Latte.
I am open to any suggestions, ideas, or just go ahead and poke some fun at me, I deserve it.
