Live from the Computer Emergency Room!

Okay, not exactly the emergency room, but we were at the Apple store "genius bar" today, and Martie took the photo op to have a whirling atom over her head. Kevin's MacBook got phwacked when he fell down the front steps this morning. He scraped and banged himself up, including a nasty wound on his elbow, and badly enough to stay home from work to assess the damage, but he was much more upset when he discovered that the body case of his computer was bent (where the keyboard and guts are). This got the track pad stuck in a down position but good, and the case needs to be replaced. It could have been MUCH worse, it's a (relatively) inexpensive fix, and the innards get cleaned too. However--he has no MacBook for a couple of days, and he is quite royally bummed. I told him to be glad he didn't crack his frakkin' tailbone OMG! but the computer concern overrode everything else. He is a 21st century boy.


  1. I'm really glad that he wasn't seriously hurt, though. Kinda too bad about the computer but it's case is replaceable and he's not so replaceable.

  2. Yep, I agree. He didn't quite see it that way--he was bleeding all over the place from the elbow, but upset only about the computer.


Please leave your thoughts. I don't expect universal love but I do expect civil commentary. If you're a hater, don't play. Thanks!
