Things often happen during inopportune moments. Like your computer crashing when you’re traveling; and my dream of waking up late, working out, lounging by the pool, and shopping crashing with it. Instead I’ve spent two days dealing with the loss of my electronic life companion, salesmen only out to convince me my old computer is not worth saving, and the sincere tekkie in the back telling me I may as well move on because everything these days is built cheap and disposable.
It’s hard to disagree. Everyone seems to want faster, bigger, prettier, and with the latest features. It seems more complicated to fix, and easier to throw away. And I’m starting to think this doesn’t just apply to electronics… Are men becoming as disposable as computers?
p.s two and a half weeks later, my Brazilian is still holding strong. I’m impressed:)
p.p.s toronto is awesome!
