The Coke Incident...
So, ummmm my Coke addiction finally caught up with me. Late last night, or early this morning however you want to view it, my delicious caffeine infused beverage of choice accidentally tipped over and went everywhere including all over my beautiful keyboard.
I cleaned up the mess, tipped the keyboard over and after it stopped dripping and I dried it off it seemed to still be working. So, I worked until 8 or 9 this morning, insomnia is my friend, and then finally crashed. When I got up, and is it really important what time I woke up?, I ran out to the store cause we had a craving for gobbler sandwiches (turkey, mayo, stuffing and cranberry sauce) and by the time I got back, got the stuffing in the oven and sat down in front of my computer it was too late.
M and N no longer worked on my keyboard and yes, I did actually sit here debating on whether I could finish writing Devastated and Irresistible without those letters. Yes, I do realize how sad that is and yes, there was much shame.
So, I got the kids back in the car, headed to Staples and ended up buying one just to hold me over until Amazon could send a better replacement. I got home, took it out of the package and it wouldn’t even hook up to my computer. I was then forced to negotiate “renting” my kids’ keyboards only to discover that they sucked.
That led to another trip out, this time to Best Buy, which made my son very happy and finally, I have a new keyboard, but I lost a day of work. So, I am going to focus on Irresistible and TDF tonight. I will have the Chronicle up this week!
Thank you for your understanding and acceptance of my sad addiction to Coke. I truly appreciate it.
