Guess what I got...

Guess what I just got? Go on, take a stab at it. You’ll never guess.
I got home from work last week and to my surprise, there was a box on the kitchen table. I asked My Better Half about it and he told me it was mine. All mine. Can you imagine my surprise? I looked at it with wonder and disbelief. I must be the first one on the block to have one of these; maybe even the whole subdivision.

Now, I do believe I am pretty hip for my age. I keep up with the times…but this…this was over the top. And now, I’m a little reluctant to even tell you what it is. I’m not the kind of person to be all “Na, na, na, na, Na naaa!” But, if I didn’t tell you, well that would just make me a big tease, now wouldn’t it?

So, here goes. But first I am going to have to ask you to sit down. I don’t want anyone to swoon or get dizzy or anything…Everyone seated? I got…Oooh, I’m so excited to tell you! I got…a…laptop!

What? You already have one? And you too? What’s that, your teenage son has one? And your eighty year old aunt?

I just can’t believe this. “POP!” That was the sound of my bubble bursting…

Welcome to the 20th century, girlfriend!

Oh, wait. It's 2008. 21st century.

Dang. Never mind. :-)

So,I've been waiting all day to see your post here. Are you now waiting until you get home from work, so you can type it up on your new laptop? I guess I'll have to quit checking back every hour during the day, and go back to work myself. DARN!

Uh, I don't have one and am now uber-jealous. Does that reinflate your bubble? Or something like that.

Seriously (and this is embarassing to admit) I still use (gasp) a desktop pc...
