A Visitation















Last week as I sat meditating over my laptop...LO! The Angel of the Mac appeared before me and prophesied unto me, saying:

"See QG, the keyboard before you worketh not. For no matter how hard you press the "B" key, it speaketh not unto the hard drive. And behold, your password screweth up and the Angel of the Hard Drive will not let you pass all because of the worthless "B" key."

"Speak, O Angel of the Mac," I pleaded. "Speak and I will hear you. Tell me what I should do and I will obey you."

But the Angel of the Mac replied, " Try, QG, try the "T" key and see what it portends."

I pressed the "T" key and it stuck. And stuck. And stuck.

"QG, go thou unto thine utility drawer and seek a pointed stick that thou mayest release the "T" key from its captivity," quoth the Angel.

"The key is now released, O Angel," I responded. "But, pray, what does all this mean?"

"Behold, QG, is this not the self-same hard drive that crashed big-time yea only a few short months ago?"

" Yes, O Angel."

"Dost thou require being hit upside the head with mine flaming sword, QG? What think you ? Thine laptop has but a little while left before it will be recalled to its MacMaker. Hie thee hence unto the Apple Store and replace it before once again you loose your data because you did not heed this warning. Woe be unto you if you do not obey. Blessed be you if you have ears and hear for you will get an IPhone when the new version is sent down from on high."

Suddenly the Angel of the Mac vanished from the room. The Angel of the Hard Drive still would not let my password pass. Who am I to ignore the warnings of the Angel of the Mac? I hied myself to the Apple store and followed the Angel's advice.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. (Doing the happy dance and can't wait for the IPhone!)

So ... the Angel of the Mac inspired you to get a new iMac laptop. Did the Cell Phone Daemon bewitch you with the iPhone ??

Ah, enjoy!

Presbyterian Gal said...

What! You mean if you buy a new laptop Apple throws in an iPhone along with it?

What's that angel's telephone number?

Remember that Satan was once an angel of light, and I am told by many that these days he appears as one promoting those useless Macs.
