Soulful Machines


Writing Prompt: Machines, appliances, and gadgets . feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?

Well since its already been discussed that I name my possessions ( I was even told that was a “white person” thing to do…. but that’s another conversation for another post ) but when you name your possessions you give them personalities as well…

By far Lydia the laptop is the bitchiest of all of the electronics that I use….. could have something to do with the fact that I use her the most… but she’s so sensitive…sometimes she wants to do things sometimes that I don’t want her to do…for example opening Windows…it deciding that my wireless mouse should stop working when I need to cut and paste.

Sometimes Lydia conspires with her best friend Wendy (the wireless Internet) to make my working day longer than I need it to be. She’s crabby and temperamental….but one good threat of replacement (or simply using Kellen) makes her act right….

Electronics are fickle…..

Until Next Time…
