What a week I have ahead of me… (actually, what a few weeks!) I’m coordinating a play festival for young playwrights and directing one of the winning plays, as well as in the final three weeks of our Spring I session at NAU-Yavapai in which I’m teaching a class on “How to be a Master Student”… My head is, as one says, spinning.
But that’s not what I want to talk about today, no, today I want to talk about my funny little Valentine…
Ooooooh, my sexy little MacBook Pro, where would I be without you? Your shiny faux-metallic keys that spin a musical clackity-clack to tease even the most stubborn of ideas from hiding… Your bright friendly screen reflecting a happy glow against even the most unpleasant of hours… Your ability to “force close” programs at the drop of a cranky-ass-hat… I can’t imagine, no, don’t WANT to imagine, where I would be without you!
When I think of all that we’ve accomplished together… The laughter and tears, the smiles and frustration, the agony of edits paired with the sweet joy of “BLACK OUT” pridefully blinking from the page – Pages upon pages of jokes, banter, punches, flying props (and sometimes people) – I rejoice, I cheer, and I pray that you never, ever, ever, crash (like you did that one time) Because… sweet MacBook Pro… I think, I think I love you.
