Death of a power pack

See that? I immediately made you think of a salesman without even trying.

I was happily Skyping with friends in Ohio and Boston on Friday when I noticed a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing: My laptop wasn't charging. Even though it was plugged in, and none of the cords had come loose.

Well, it was 10:30 p.m. anyways, so I explained the situation and bid my friends au revoir. (In English.) On Sunday, my cousin checked the power pack with his nifty little volt checker... or whatever it's called... and determined that yes, it's the power pack. Thank goodness my computer is still all right.

Amazon is sending me a new power pack. But it won't arrive until sometime next week. In the meantime, I'll be spending a lot of time with my books and some movies. And at the library.

 So, much as I enjoyed getting all that reader interaction... and as good as those ideas were... I'm afraid we'll have to wait on a few of those posts. Unless I want to be spending umpteen hours on the library computers, which doesn't appeal to me at all. No thank you.

I didn't think of a salesman. I thought of a power pack for a computer... It took me a couple seconds to realize why you mentioned a salesman in the first place. :P

I wasn't think of a salesman, either, until you told me to! But I did know why you sald it! :-)
Now you have more comments on your site and I am caught up in my reading! Thanks for sharing!

Perhaps if we had not just finished having the discussion about said death, I may have come up with that connection on my own, but I did not as it were do so.
