Peach State says: The modern inconvenience called the Internet
Turn on computer and wait! Mark all the appropriate boxes to clear off the screen
in preparation to start my day. “Explorer has failed and is restarting!” Down goes
the screen and then pops back up. “Explorer has failed and is restarting!” I don’t
like the pattern that is evolving. I turn off my computer and hope the message,
filling me with frustration, will not return. So far so good then, with bells and
warning lights come the pop-up. “Explorer has failed and is restarting!” What did I
do to deserve this so early in the morning? I try all the techniques and secrets my
son has taught me to no avail. “I quit!” I say in my head. I don’t want to wake
those sleeping upstairs. I turn my computer off again and reach for my trusted
iPhone. My faithful friend brings up the pages I seek and I quickly maneuver
through them, aware of the time lost while fighting with my PC.
I feel scattered and out of sorts, not being able to do those little tasks, and begin
my day behind schedule. “Has this ever happened to you?” Why do we find it a
pivotal part of our day and when this happens we see the billboard size
neon sign blinking [EPIC FAIL].
This inconvenience slows me down and without it I can’t access my
book or my blog. “Do you know how long it is taking me to type this using
using my phone?”. Well, I am a creature of habit and things must be done.
I was busy yesterday and could not blog. My day was off ever so slightly.
“I will succeed and overcome this tragedy, thrust upon my very being, and
write.” We lived our lives and thrived without the Internet for a long time. Why
can’t I now.
“Really got caught up in the moment and forgot I am enjoying the use of this
“Inconvenience” while blogging on my phone. Things we take for granted!
With this said I will move on to the next task. “Who knows, my son may find the
straw that broke my camel’s back today and I will write you again. “Till then
have a great day and surf without me!”
Angry Birds here I come!
