NOT that I complain a lot.....who? Me? *cough* But I mentioned to a friend of mine in Mesa, Arizona, that my laptop is getting too heavy to use.
When this first started happening, Joe and I went Kindle shopping. I thought I wanted a Paperwhite, until I saw the Kindle Fire HD sitting beside it. I left the store and ordered it on Amazon.com.
I fell in love with it immediately, but discovered it's a lot heavier than I had anticipated. LOTS heavier than the Paperwhite. (in case you're interested)
I popped on a purty case, and it got heavier! WTH?
Recently I mentioned this phenomenon to my Arizona friend. Suddenly, my Kindle was getting too heavy for me!
I have NO friggin' idea what's up with this change in me. Things I used to toss over my shoulder and climb a ladder with, are a distant memory.
I have turned into counting the number of Kleenex I pull out of the box. Not because I'm thrifty, but three Kleenex weigh more than two.
Things are getting heavier. Newsprint is getting lighter and smaller. So, like my parents used to say: "The damn newspaper is saving on ink!"
When Joe came in the door today, carrying a large plastic envelope, I had no idea that THIS was inside.
Ain't it GAWGEOUS!
The only tip-off regarding who sent it was a card inside signed "SANDIE".
It didn't take me much longer to figure out that Sandie had sent me a pillow.
I'm sharp like that.
Then I read the instructions.
When a pillow comes with INSTRUCTIONS, you start wondering how dumb can "some" people be. I figured I either was supposed to sit on it, or lay my head on it.
It's a Kindle pillow!!!
I'm sure the pillow will add to the weight, but it props the Kindle up so that I don't even have to hold it!
That's leaves two free hands for popcorn and a diet Coke!
I love my internet family.
