…tell it again.
So, last year my husband attempted to buy me a new laptop for Christmas.
“No! Mine works fine!” I argued.
And so, three months later, my computer crashed.
This was a lesson in “when your husband wants to do nice things shut up and let him do them”
So this fall, again, my husband wants to replace my now twice crashed laptop.
I look at the 11 inch Macbook Airs and I love them. I want them to be part of my family.
But, the washing machine has been occasionally not working.
So I say “no, let’s just get a new washer and dryer instead”*
We look at consumer reports and pick one out. Buy it on Black Friday (we had a nice helper at Sears who let us call in to get the deal, so it was just a phone call at 4 am, not a stupid line! Win!)
And last Friday what do I do?
Drop my laptop.
I am why we can’t have nice things.
*note to everyone: washers and dryers are only an ok gift if your spouse tells you to buy them one. Otherwise they aren’t a present.
