My computer went to sleep this morning, and did not wake up. I'll google it, I thought. Bugger. I turned it on and off. No game. Someone on Twitter will know what to do! Bugger. I disconnected cables, reconnected cables. No game. I called Vonnie and Bob in a panic, 'My best friend has died!' Bob talked me through the problem. I opened up the heart of the computer and could find no evidence of the elusive video card despite lots of staring. I have to look up the computer repair shop phone number. Bugger. I found something called a phone book in the recess of the closet. Bring it in, he said. I carried the computer one mile down the road like Atlas carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. He looked at me sadly as he cut the umbilical cord that held us together. Pray for us. Or send me a text. I'm lonely.
