said it before but you probably didn’t believe me; it’s likely you thought I was being self-deprecating modest, but when it comes to electronics I’m a dolt moron. Most of the time my computer usually makes me want to pull out my hair. Mrs. Chatterbox is fairly good at figuring things out on the computer, but it’s our thirty-one year old son CJ who really knows how to tame the electronic box and make it sing and dance. Our boy is an electronic genius wiz. Maybe it comes from buying him all those Transformers and electronic games gadgets when he was a kid. Unfortunately, CJ guards his gifts carefully and doles them out like a fat kid hoarding M&Ms. I’m exaggerating, of course.
I’ve come up with an idea that has been working well for the past few years. I’ve suggested that when gift giving occasions occur, like birthdays or
Holidays Christmas, I tell CJ to save his money and instead show me how to do something on the computer. This past Christmas I received the em dash—and I couldn’t be more pleased happier with it.
Last night CJ, who lives across town, came for supper and I asked for an early Father’s Day
present gift. My computer blogger friends all seem to know how to do something I don’t. It’s embarrassing not to know how to do something so simple, and when you discover realize I didn’t know how to do this you’re going to lose a lot of respect for me. Hopefully you’ll forgive me get over it.
figure out guess what I just learned how to do?
