…there was a momma. And she was also a writer. One day not so long ago, she was nursing her 3 month old baby and working on her laptop editing a much beloved novel she had written. The momma / writer stood up with the baby and forgot to close her laptop. She did not hear the warning bells that sounded in the distance. She put her baby on her shoulder, when a horrible event occurred, but, of course, the mama/writer did not know it yet. What was the event, you may be asking? The baby spit up. Be it that this is an every day occurrence – several times a day – what made this so catastrophic? The mamma / writer went to clean up baby and herself and came back to laptop, where her much loved novel was stored within, and discovered it was covered in spit up. She tried to use her laptop, but alas it went FFFFIZZZggght, and to sleep. This sleep was not permanent, as the people from the wonderful land of Apple Store restored laptop, and novel was saved! The baby was spared the dungeon, being that he was only 3 months old and unaware what he was doing. Besides he was just so cute! Mamma/writer, novel, and baby all lived happily ever after. (we hope)
To all other mamma / writers – you have been warned. This is not just an urban legend circulating the park, or playgroup, or mama baby yoga. It really happened.
Your turn – any computer mishaps to share?
(ps. I was lost without my laptop. How dependant I have become….)
