Time spent . . .

I chose to update my laptop.  Great idea.

Why I chose to do it in the middle of struggling to write something that was very important to me, I’m not sure.  The fancy took me and I struck.  And I immediately regretted the decision as I slumped, crestfallen, having seen the message telling me that the update would take 26 minutes.

26 minutes?  I haven’t got 26 minutes minutes to wait for my laptop to jump back into action. I need it now. Instant access, fast, available, reliable, updated to the hilt.  

And after I’d used the 26 minutes to have a well-deserved break away from my laptop, I returned to the writing that was very important to me, and somehow managed to finish it.

Strange that.
