It all started with the BlackBerry PlayBook being released, and it’s gone downhill from there.
I adore electronic toys.
I believe I have my father to blame for this as I often bounced on my fathers back and asked little kids questions about what he was doing as he sat cross- legged on the living room floor trying to figure out the wire tangle he had in front of him.
I didn’t understand his mumbling and grumbling was to be taken for an intense thought process that would include deciphering which wire in this tangle he created was to be connected to a toggle switch box. This switch box was to be connected to his HiFi stereo system through another set of wires, and another set of wires was to be pushed through a hole in the ceiling so he could listen to the Rolling Stones while he pooped in the bathroom. Often my mother would come home, and ask, “Why is there a hole in the ceiling?”, to which he would often respond to talking about the value of having stereo speakers in every room in the house, and how great it would be to poop to music in Dolby Stereo.
