Laptop’s dead. It will soon join it’s missing letter ‘D’ in the afterlife. The new keyboard for it will be shelved for use another time, in another place, perhaps to fix a problem with some other laptop’s eventual missing letter.
The funeral service is scheduled for 10:00 Sunday morning. As I type this out on my phone I am mourning the loss of my dear friend. We’ve told a lot of stories together and I miss the companionship.
Hopefully by Sunday afternoon I will have a new friend to replace the dead one.
Don’t judge the ease with which this transition will be made. I will shed a tear of respect, wipe it away, and promptly move forward. Take joy in my resilience and fret not the loss, for it is solely mine to bear.
