From the eyes of my computer

From the eyes of my computer:

I was thinking this was an easy gig when I got here. The boss (she's the one who pays the bills, so I guess she's the boss) spends most of her time on her work laptop, then there's a couple of kids, too young to need a computer for much of anything. So I figured I'd just be hanging out most of the time. The kids would play a few cutesy kiddie games, and we'd all be cool.

Fast forward a couple of months: the boss switches jobs, so her old laptop computer's gone, and I'm up for the big show. Then when she's not working on me, the kids are right there - and I mean RIGHT THERE! "Mom, can I get on the computer? Mom can I get on the computer?" The boss pounds out what work she can and turns me over to the wee ones. Then it's all these crazy games with crazy graphics, and videos, and pictures .... and you know they're even building and running FOUR separate worlds. It's a lot to ask of a computer, you know.

Finally, it's time for the kiddies to go to bed, and I'm thinking, "Whew! A rest!"


The boss is back with 15 blog windows open, catching up on her Facebook games with a dozen more tabs open, and I can't keep up!

Now it's football season (that's European football, she's quick to remind). Oh boy, we're looking at nonstop streaming games ... for how many months?

Maybe I should retire, and the boss should get herself one of those sleek, high-powered new HP computers.
