“Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I’ve been lovin’ you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
How am I supposed to carry on
When all that I’ve been livin’ for is gone”

I’m guessing that everybody has heard this chart-topping, ultra-sappy Michael Bolton song sometime or the other in their lives. I’m not (yet) the Romantic type, I never thought I would ever actually feel that the lyrics apply to me, or actually feel like listening to it.

But the unthinkable has happened. And I’m quoting these lyrics. Not for a guy (or girl!) but for my dear LAPTOP.

Mom wants to go to Mangalore to meet somebody she knows, & she’s dragging me along. I absolutely hate it there (she knows it), but she gets me so much & does so much for me, how can I refuse? I’m surely not gonna let her go alone.
So I agreed to go with her, but on one condition: I’m to carry my Laptop with me.
My laptop completed it’s 1st Birthday a few months ago, & it’s been acting up a wee bit. The keys sometimes get stuck, the ‘M’ key got detached, the screen is slightly loose etc. So it has to be given for servicing, and I’m gonna hate being without it even for a day.

On the bright side, I will continue using the desktop, and when my laptop comes back all fixed, I’m gonna be sooooo happy!
Update: As of evening, I have decided to postpone the plans to service my laptop. It can wait! Not mentally prepared to part with my beloved yet…
