Well, last night I realized I have been hanging around with my brother Patrick too much. Mr. Patrick is a huge klutz, always running too fast and knocking things over.
Anyway, last night, I was just sitting next to Mom's computer nonchalantly when I accidentally knocked over her bottle of water on her laptop. Uh, oh....well first the computer seemed okay, then the page started flipping up. Mom tried to fix it. She rebooted. That seemed good for a little while. Then the computer started putting end-of-paragraph markers down the page and it scrolled and scrolled by itself and created a zillion pages. Mom erased them and tried again. Then suddenly the enter and space bar keys went out! So she couldn't put spaces between words or paragraphs!
Yikes! What could I say? I was hiding by this time. But then I started thinking about it...You know, I have come to the conclusion that it wasn't really me at all sitting next to her on the computer. It was Patrick! Yes, it must have been...hmmm...he doesn't usually sit there, but yes...I remember it well! It was Patrick!
So I came out and told her to yell at Patrick. She frowned at me then told me to jump on her lap. She didn't yell at me, but she didn't yell at Patrick either. Hmmm...then this morning she said the computer was all dry and acting normally. Whew! Well, now I know that I can dump water on it any time I want and not really break the computer...for long!
