Everything Language and Grammar

I’m Very Handy

Posted by languageandgrammar on June 27, 2008

I’m a writer, not a computer repairman–and I have proof.

Here at the languageandgrammar.com headquarters, we recently needed to buy a new laptop. It’s not that the old laptop quit working, but the hinges that held the screen in an upright position broke, so it either needed to be propped up against a wall (negating the advantages of being a laptop, I might note), or we needed to write on the computer with the screen lying parallel to the keyboard.

Since there are advantages to having two computers, I decided to try to fix the older computer. I purchased a couple of L braces and some Super Glue, and since I’m writing a blog about it, I’m sure that you can imagine that the repairs did not go smoothly. I’ll avoid all of the details–I’ll just say that super glue is not easy to remove from your fingers, and you should always check to make sure that the power cord hole isn’t in the same location as the metal that you’re about to glue to the computer.

    🙂 I can just picture it!

    Duct tape is a lot easier to remove…though my husband prefers plumber’s epoxy.
