I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard personally from me, but in this world of advancing technology, I have finally become comfortable with my computer. I use it for many things, including staying in contact with my friends. I am writing this now because it seems a storm knocked out my internet, and since the nice cable people have to wait for the okay from the nice power company people to restore access, I am without means to complete a few things.
To my sister. I’m sorry I wrote you that long list of things you could do for me while I’m away for a couple of days having the time of my life. I really don’t need my curtains washed. You could wait until spring, I suppose, but if you get a chance, instead of just changing the bed, would you pick up a new bed ensemble for me? I saw a nice one with teeny roses on it, in a deep blue. It would match my eyes, I think. I would go on line and order one, but the cable is still out.
To my eldest grandniece. No, I haven’t written an article about you yet. I was going to do that today, but the cable is still out, and I can’t post anything. Yes, I found the list of things you would like me to mention, but do you really think it’s proper for me to put up your graduation photos, and survey my AC friends as to who is prettier, smarter, and more intelligent? I dunno. I’ll think about it, but I can’t do it today because you see, hunny, the CABLE is still out.
To the electrician, Chris. Thanks so much for coming down to service the hot tub in the pouring rain and wind. It’s no wonder you and the nephew get along so well. You’re two peas in a pod, with your Gestapo like tactics, and all. You both sure know how to take charge of the situation. Sorry about that zap thing. I think your eyebrows will grow back in no time, and I can get that wall you went through fixed in a jiffy. I’ll email George to get right on it. Oh, wait. I can’t email him, silly me. Because…the CABLE is STILL down.
And to my good friend Green. As you have probably guessed by now, I can’t go online to that “special ” site you asked me to go to for you, because the cable is down. If you can wait a couple of days, I’m sure I’ll have it back. Do you really think the police will hunt you down if you go there yourself? Also I forgot the name of that stuff you were curious about, so could you email me with the name of it? Somehow I don’t think “WOW POW” is what you were looking for, but I remember it’s something like that. Is it “POW WOW”? Wait a minute. I can’t get to my email, because the CABLE is STILL DOWN.
Well, I guess I’ll just sit back and patiently wait for the nice power people to call the nice cable people to let them know they can fix the problem. Hey, maybe I’ll call the cable people and try to find out how much longer it will be. Then I can figure out if I should go to the nephew’s joint to do this stuff or not. That seems like a plan. Uh, nope. That won’t work either, because the FREAKIN” PHONES ARE DOWN.
