This week's topic is Wisdom,
something we could all use more of.
“Billy – come on – we’ve got to get to the doctor’s; I don’t care if Steve Jobs did ask you for that new app of yours.”
Surrounded by monitors, keyboards and assorted electronics, Billy muttered to himself, “Tim Cook, Ma, Tim Cook – Steve Jobs is dead and I will be too if they don’t get this by tomorrow.”
Twenty minutes later, he was in the big padded chair with a mouthful of gauze and a masked man approaching him, a gleaming instrument in his gloved hand.
“We’ll have those wisdom teeth out in no time, Billy.”
Thank you for this post!
Now I understand why I cannot use a Laptop or any other of these doomed contraptions! :))
I like it. It is very well written!
Thanks for sharing.
Welcome, Od. I suppose this story would explain all the nine-year-olds guiding their ancients through The Land of Computers.Delete
Boy genius rendered ordinary by loss of wisdom teeth. What a tale! Love that last visual where he's staring at a screen that no longer makes sense to him. I do that all the time. Now I know why! :)ReplyDelete
Yes, I'm about three steps away from believing there are tiny people inside my computer.Delete
Love it !ReplyDelete
I'm finally growing a wisdom tooth, now I'm in my sixties . Perhaps my laptop's workings are about to make sense at last .
See?? We all just need a bit more patience.ReplyDelete
