>It was the second day of school. The bell rang, the kids started to come in.
And then all hell broke loose.
Remember The Cat in the Hat? “Then something went bump. How that bump made us jump!”
This “bump” was more of a crash. I jumped. The first kid in the room jumped. The teachers across the hall jumped and ran in. My desk had collapsed. One leg fell off, tipping the entire desk, and everything, I do mean EVERYTHING slid to the floor.
Everything: including the computer.
A friend brought me a 16 oz. Pike’s Place blend, my favorite, later in the morning. Helpdesk red flagged my request for repair, and the tech was out within a week. Don’t tell the library media specialist; her printer didn’t get fixed yet. I had first priority. I guess it pays to be nice to the I.T. people.
The desk is fixed now, and I requisitioned a computer table to lighten the load. Call me paranoid, and you’ll be right, but I’m not, repeat, NOT going through another crash like that. Nope.
