A few weeks ago my home pc took the regrettable step of committing suicide. I had got no prior warning that it was distressed and harboring such dark thoughts. When I took it to the computer ER the doctor pursed his lips and said ' mmm, too late, I'm afraid, it's too far gone' I was shocked, it was very high tech, and only four years old. We had been through a lot together, from my fumbling attempts to send emails, my stuttering introduction to wattpad. We were friends, we had grown together, now he was gone, I was bereft, lost and alone.
My sons can see my grief and are trying to find me a suitable companion, but it has to be the right companion.
In the interim I am visiting the library daily to try and stay in touch, I am learning to use my mobile phone for the purpose for which it was designed, which is clearly not for making phone calls!
The moral of this sad tale is; don't get too close to your devices, you will become dependent on them, and when they have you hooked, they will leave you like a faithless lover.
