Don’t you love books that make you up stay up all night? I DO!!!!! I didn’t go to bed until a little after 2am. And when I work up at 6am my Kindle was beside my head urging me to pick up where I left off. I turned it on and read until 7am and then felt guilty for lying in bed so long. I haven’t done that in a very long time. I’m talking years!
Upon waking, I fired up my computer—ready for a day of work— and to my horror it wouldn’t connect to the internet. I feared I had the virus everyone was talking about. After 30 minutes of trying to figure out what was going on I finally called my service provider. Tech support went through a few different things and they were as stumped as I when they couldn’t get it to work. As a last resort I was told to unplug my router to “power cycle it”. This would reset everything.
When I went to unplug the router I felt like a fool. It WASN’T plugged in to begin with. I then vaguely remembered my Kindle almost dying at approximately 1am. As tech support talked me through what I was supposed to do, I had a flashback of the moment when the dull chime, the sound that lets me know my Kindle battery is about to go dead, ripped though my reading induced haze. Of course I was in the middle of a love scene, of course the heroine was a virgin, of course this was the first time she would be making love, and of course it would be an absolute tragedy if anything were to disrupt my reading during this pivotal moment.
In my panic I rolled swiftly, hanging half off the bed as I groped around in the dark feeling for the power outlet. Trying not to wake my hubby, I blindly ripped the cords from the wall freeing up a much needed socket. Using the light of my Kindle I line up the prongs and plugged in its power cord. Disaster avoided. I was quite please with myself and my reward was another hour of reading.
Feeling like a moron I tell tech support that the “power cycle” worked. I wasn’t going to tell him the truth. Could you imagine…
I am almost finished with my book, 91% as you can see, and I want nothing more than to go back to bed and see how it all ends. But with my pathetic start to the day I figure the book will wait until tonight.
