Plug Me Up…


This weekend…my computer died…for a few days…it had been acting a little Jane Carrollstrange…with the screen going dim from time to time…and…then…it would get bright again…I did what I knew to do…checked the cord to be sure it was plugged in…and…backed up everything on a flash drive…which I couldn’t find when the crash came

Finally…as I was thick into the edits of Becoming Bertha…it happened…I got a message saying that my battery was at a critical low…even though the computer was plugged in…

I shut it down…I called the guru…was told to bring it in…for $$ they would try to determine what had happened…

What could I do…I have to have a computer…lives depend on my writing… well… okay…they don’t…but…it’s important to me…so I drove the twenty-five miles to get it checked…praying all the way…

By the time I got there…I had an idea…check the power cord…the young guru didn’t think that could be the problem…but…he was willing to plug it in with one of his…and… voilà…it worked… so for exactly $$ instead of a diagnostic exam…I got a new power cord…and…as you can see…everything is working just fine…although I still can’t find the backup drive

Of course…Bertha…says it reminds her of my life…and how often I act like the guru…never considering the obvious…only looking for the big hairy deals…

She may have mentioned the words…Drama Queen…but since I was back to editing by then…I just deleted that remark…

  1. There’s something to be said for being a “drama queen” every now and again. LOL! Glad the computer issue had a happy ending. Hope you find your backup drive. :-)
