Berowne's 299

(Also for ABC Wednesday: "X" is for exasperation.)

Yesterday…
All my troubles seemed so far away.
But problems then showed up, as if to stay.
Though I believed in --
Yesterday.

Suddenly…
Something came to live in my hard drive,
A nasty virus that was real, alive.
No word of warning, just about midday.
I never will forget that –
Yesterday.

I called my faithful old computer guy.
This time, it seems, he had an alibi:
He’d just left for his holiday.
In fact, he’d just left --
Yesterday.

I like to think I’m good as blogging host,
But then I couldn’t even send a post.
The virus knocked my ‘pewter for a loop;
My very blog began to sag and droop.

But now it’s fixed, all set to meet and greet.
Tho I won’t soon forget the disarray
And all the mess that happened –
Yesterday.

(Forgive the exasperation.  As the above indicates, Berowne had a little problem; hopes to be back to normal next week.)

What DID we do before computers??? I, too, feel so cut off from EVERYONE when my "pooter" takes a nosedive. Have a drink for a very Merry Christmas and see you later.

Good luck with your computer. But it's a good time to stop thinking about it and enjoying the holiday season. Have fun.
