I should be mowing the lawn. But I’ve been trying to figure out how to install and activate computer security stuff instead. Normally, that would not be difficult. Those ‘wizard’ tools are wonderful and you just click agree/yes/go for it/etc until it’s done. Those were MADE for me.
Something bad happened halfway through the process and then my computer shut down and eventually came back to life but it’s kinda hard to start up that process again from the halfway mark, for reasons i will never understand.
It all started with my mother. Last night. She called and sounded a little… weird. She asked if Mike was home, because she’d been trying to reach him and then there was this odd backstory about being at a town hall meeting and realizing her computer was sending out spam emails to everyone about erectile dysfunction and then she had to leave the meeting to address that and she really, really, really wanted help fixing that as soon as possible.
I passed the phone over to Mike. And made a mental note to stop ignoring the warning on my own computer that my security stuff was out of date. Then I got my phone back and we made inappropriate jokes and unfortunate puns and laughed until one of us snorted painfully.* (Okay, that would be me.)
And that’s how my Friday morning got derailed. But I’m giving up for now and going to take on the grass instead.
*No, of course i will not repeat them. That would be ridiculously immature. Especially after I got through the entire 18 month period in which one of the kids pronounced the word ‘sock’ as ‘cock’ and I RESISTED the urge to blog about that even though it about killed me on a daily basis.
