It always irks me when, as a person who does computer repair, I'm asked to diagnose or fix a computer and upon further inspection of said computer, it's full of children's games. "Why," I think to myself, "do people let their kids put all these stupid games on their computers...especially when it's a computer designed for business use?" It steams me. It annoys me. It makes me wonder why the games aren't loaded on the family computer in the living room, rather than the business laptop. Tonight, I learned the answer to these and many other questions when my son came in begging to put his Backyardigans game on my computer. (By the way, thanks to my brother and sister-in-law for the fact that we even own a Backyardigans computer game) Anyway, my desktop computer is located in the basement. It's cold down there. It's dark down there. My son won't go down there alone and I had work to do upstairs. Somehow in a temporary loss of sanity, the Backyardigans have wound up on my laptop. I'm totally ashamed. What's worse...I would have made this blog post earlier, but my son was practicing typing his letters, so I had to wait my turn.
