I didn’t ask if it was PC or Mac

I’ve mentioned before that sometimes I leap to conclusions that, while fully supported by the facts, are also dead wrong. It’s one of those NF character traits.

The other day I did it again. No harm done, but I did think angelward, “If you had a quarter for every time I leaped to the wrong conclusion, you could buy yourself a really nice computer. And some pretty awesome software.”

And what would an angel do with a computer? (I mean, other than join a support group for guardian angels.) Let’s take this one out into the realm of fantasy-fun.Well, fun at my expense, which is pretty much why I keep a blog in the first place.

Me: You could buy yourself a really nice computer. And some pretty awesome software.

Angel: Sin-Minder(tm)

Me: What?

Angel: It’s a database program for entering all your sins as you commit them.

Me: …?….

Angel: And then I can have it sort them, graph them, analyze the data for trends–

Me: …!!!….

Angel: I can check off the sins as you confess them, and it also keeps track of the temporal justice you’ll need to repay as a result of your sins.

Me: {huddles around self on seat}

Angel: I decided to get SinMinder Pro rather than the regular version because you can change the tags on the sins. Sometimes I find they categorize something under pride whereas in your case it definitely falls under sloth.

Me: {crawling under the chair}

Angel: Plus with the Pro version I can upload the data to the SinMinderPro online community and get directed guidance from their techs on how to interpret the data.

Me: {closes eyes and covers face with hands, whimpering}

Angel: So go ahead. Leap to all the conclusions you want.

Me: *weeps*

Angel: Hey, look! Another quarter for the computer fund! Good job!

    Hi Jane. I followed the link from Mary’s “The Beautiful Gate” blog. And I am so glad I did. I have enjoyed your posts so much!

    Also, I read Emily Rose’s story. Thank you for sharing your daughter. We lost a son, Thomas as a baby. He had a diagraphmatic hernia and, because of this, he was born with very little lung tissue – he wasn’t able to breathe independantly. Even though our babies had different problems, so much of what you wrote I could identify with.
    May God bless you!
