Girls Write Out

Computers are a blessing and a curse, aren’t they? When they’re working, they’re a wonderful thing. Something goes wrong . . . they can make a saint want to commit a heinous felony. But let’s face it, they do have some pretty cool capabilities.

I was just thinking about this last night when I overate at our church’s small group. (Hey, if you belonged to our small group, you’d overeat too.) I got to thinking (always dangerous)—wouldn’t it be nice if our bodies had a “system restore”? You eat too much, you just set the body back an hour or so and you’re good to go. There’s my kind of diet, and one that would really come in handy three days from now.

Wouldn’t it be nice on those “fuzzy thinking” days (or maybe I’m the only one who has those) if we could just reboot? At the push of a button, instant clarity. Okay, not really instant, but a lot quicker than a long jog around the neighborhood or—who am I kidding—three cups of caffeine.

Vision getting worse? Increase the pixels. Tired of graphic images and language? Install a filter. Works on the tongue too. Hey, it’s my invention, I can make it anything I want. Memory problems? Push the “save” button. Shoot, create a backup file just to be safe. Bad memories? Click on “remove program”. Say the wrong thing? (Me? NEVER.) Backspace. Can’t express yourself adequately? Click on “send” and all your thoughts will transfer to your husband. Okay, maybe this isn’t a brilliant idea.

All I know is, come Thursday, when I’ve collapsed in a tryptophan-induced coma, that “system restore” thing is gonna sound pretty good. And I have a feeling a few million others might be happy to sign up for the program too.

Ahh, the button that would put me back to 125 lbs. and would make my hair stay brown and give me eyes that don't need glasses and it'd remove the wrinkles and get rid of the stretch marks and firm up the belly.........maybe that's more than one button!

ROTFLOL! I think you're onto something here, Denise. Let me know when you've worked out all the bugs, and I'm in! *g*

Oooh, Anna Marie, I think you'r on to something with Photoshop!

I'd love to learn to play the guitar. If only I could just download the program and make it a reality.

LOL!! I'd probably keep getting error messages, pick up a highjacker that takes me where I don't want to go, and be told I can't do a system restore back to 1981!!

Denise, this sounds dangerously close to a Sci-fi plot.

I have a system restore. It's called shoe shopping. And it restores absolutely everything. : ) Try it.
