05:11 pm: Brains aren't real
There's a bone in your* head, but brains aren't real.

I'm inclined to agree with Teddy after some of the calls I've had today. I listened to one poor guy rant because he had to help someone whose laptop was "broken."

She was pushing the wrong key to start it up. Over and over again. She ignored the universal on/off symbol on the GREAT BIG KEY next to the one she kept pushing. That one is teeny tiny and has a mysterious symbol on it. But she pushed it over and over and over, apparently expecting a different result this time.

Brains aren't real all right.

* This seems to be the general you, not the specific.

Before you're too hard on her (and hers must be made of amber, I agree), let me share a memory of the first hockey game I ever watched. On TV. Black & white, of course. And just a few minutes.. I soon left the room -- when your father asked me why I didn't stay, I asked him why the puck never moved. It was boring. It seems I was watching a dirty speck on the screen.

Hockey pucks aren't real either. And I've never watched longer than it took me to find the puck since that wonderful experience.

Re: Brains

ha! that's a pretty good one. Not quite as good as when I thought we were taking an awfully long time to get past Iceland on a flight.

Iceland = plane wing.

Early in my 'visit' to Boston 10 years ago, I was invited to a party where I knew no one. But food was promised so I attended and was hoping to meet new people anyway.

The football game was on the big screen TV. I looked at the score and wanted to confirm, out loud of course, what team was in Nebraska (NE)?

I made No Friends that day.

Peter says he did the same thing. And I did have to explain to a few people at some point that it wasn't Swingin' NEbraska.
