Dead Computer

This is my entry for the 100 word challenge for  week 30. Here is the link to the site to participate and/or see the other entries.

The required phrase is “it wasn’t my fault”.

I pressed my computer’s power button; nothing. “What’s wrong with my computer” I hollered. “It wasn’t my fault,” muttered my son and husband simultaneously. “Did you run Norton antivirus” asked my husband. “Yes,” I said sullenly. We replaced the battery. We checked the cords. No luck. Computer dead. I headed to the library. I went online and checked the news. I was stunned to read I had slept through an earthquake last night. I complained to the person at the next monitor that my home computer died. “was it my FAULT?” I heard the earthquake ask. “Definitely” I answered laughingly.

      Thanks Cee! As you know from reading my blog, is nearly impossible for me to be brief. The fact that I can say ANYTHING (except a lunch order) in 100 words is a huge accomplishment…. ;-).

    I loved the automatic response from the husband and son – cracked me up 🙂 Well done!

  2. I like the way you used the prompt more than once, and the earthquake (which probably was responsible!) made me smile!
