A laptop! A laptop! My kingdom, etc.

Last night at my blogging course (what, you think I can do all this without some guidance?) my laptop suddenly informed me that it was running low on battery power and would shortly fall asleep.  Then it made good its threat.  This was especially disturbing as it was plugged into a wall socket at the time.

I took it home, cradling it in my arms, and tried to revive it.  A few weak flashes of light were the only signs of the once robust, gregarious creature that gave me such freedom and happiness.

“Wake up, little Acer!” I cried, but to no avail.  I shut it quietly and laid my cheek against its cold steel face.

Tomorrow its Daddy will take it down to the hospital, where all good laptops get better and stronger.

Maybe I am getting too close to inanimate objects.  No wonder the cats are viewing it with jealousy and suspicion.
