If I knew that I had only one year to live, I’d spend it on the phone helping my father-in-law with his computer.
First, it would make one year feel like five. Maybe ten.
And second, as the end of the year approached, I would be ecstatic.
Me: Okay, now hit the “Enter” key.
Father-in-Law: What key?
Me: The “Enter” key.
Me: You know, the “Enter” key! The key with the bent arrow! I’m sure you have one on your keyboard!
FIL (after a pause): No, I don’t.
What makes it really sad is that my father-in-law is a retired engineer.
