This Is Painful

What was I thinking?

When I got my new laptop, I offered to teach my technology-challenged hubby how to use a computer on the desktop system I moved downstairs.

His first lesson was held last weekend. After showing him the basics, how to use the mouse, the parts of the CPU, how to open, close and minimize Windows, he ended up playing Space Invaders all night.

* Sigh *

(BTW, I totally whipped his butt with my high scores...)

Anyway, at least the poor guy is trying.

He IS having difficulty getting a handle on all the new lingo he hears daughter and I banter back and forth though.

The other day he broke us up by saying how cool it was that I had gotten a 'Boggle Award'.

"Um, no honey, not 'Boggle'." I interjected.

"Oh, 'Google' Award" he corrected himself.

Sigh. "Not quite sweetheart. It's a 'Blogging' Award."


I know what he'll be doing this weekend.

Space Invaders will be back with a vengance.

It Googles the mind, don't it?

I think my husband just tunes out when I start to talk blog. As for other computer things, he hates it that I know more than him. I try to explain I am just computer gufted, I pick things up easily...but still the macho ego gets in the way.
