The doctor told me that I had to stay off my feet for a while, which forced me to spend the greater portion of the week in bed. To make matters worse, my laptop’s graphics card caused kernel panics in the operating system, resulting in spontaneous crashes every few minutes. It was fine to go laptop-less for a day, but then my brain came up with an abundance of wonderful ideas that required the use of a computer to bring them to life. I had access to my work laptop and my iPad, but neither machine was powerful enough to run the programs that I needed, so I needed to find a solution as quickly as possible.
I mustered up enough footpower to [slowly] make it to the Apple store and I found out that my laptop would take about a week to fix. A LONG week! When I spoke to the Apple Genius about the urgency of implementing my thoughts, he relayed the story to the manager who approved an extended return policy for a new laptop. So I shelled out $2,900 for a laptop that I will use for the next few weeks until my computer is brought back to life. Now I’m obligated to implement at least one idea that will generate at least $3,000 to make this entire ordeal feel like it was worth it.
So here she is. I call her, “The Other Woman.” I can’t ever let my other laptop know that this happened…I don’t want to make her jealous.
