  • Laptop, I am sorry for yesterday.
    I didn't want to have to hard-reboot you.
    Definitely not 3 times.
    It hurts inside, to hear that beep-like noise,
    Which signals that I pressed and held your power button for three seconds.
    I had no idea that you would gray-screen on me.
    And that you would freeze again.
    And then run so slowly.
    But you did.
    And no matter the pain that it would cause,
    I had to take necessary measures...

    Here is my plan to make it up to you,
    For the distress I may have caused you,
    I promise to use that cooly-pad every time I use you for the next week :)
