I have a confession to make.
My computer is a lemon.
It saddens me to tell you that because it’s a Dell and I’ve always loved Dell computers. Twelve years ago I purchased my very first Dell desktop and it was amazing. Believe me, I wore that machine absolutely out. When it came time to part with my original contraption, why would I not want another Dell? Well, this one sucks. I’ve only had it two years and I have seriously wanted to throw it against the wall several hundred times. I don’t claim to be Bill Gates even so I know my way around a computer and I have had to reformat this thing three times as Windows refuses to start. And, it randomly chooses files to munch or toss, I’m not sure which, but it’s certainly frustrating. Now, you may be thinking perhaps the difficulty is with me, that I have reached the age of senility thus sporadically deleting files willy-nilly only to forget at a later time. The senility part is a possibility, at times, but I do not haphazardly dump files. If anything, I hold on to them long after I should trash them already. I’ve heard the saying ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’, how do I make lemonade from a computer?
I promise a much better and more fascinating entry tomorrow but, as for now, I must scour the recycle bin for my new anti-virus program. Frickin’ computer.
