Ode to my Laptop

Just an HP
Before I knew Macs were cool
Bought you for 1000+
Forgot to send the rebate in

Took you to Mexico
and San Antonio
And you entertained my 18 month old
on the nightmare-flight to San Diego

You graduated me from pen and paper
to appointments color-coded
by Outlook
You lured me from my spiral notebook
to posting my thoughts in the blogosphere
You seduced me to Facebook
where I got in touch with old friends
and old now-I-know-why-we're-not-friends

Your fateful end was the meeting of
my three loves:
my son, my coffee, my laptop
It's gonna be hard to move on
Unless I get a flaming pink Mac
So, here's to you
and all the words we've shared

  1. Oh April I can feel your pain! Losing access to your laptop is like losing a limb. I have been there!! I hope a hot pink Mac finds its way into your hands. :)
