This is why you should always wait until the day before Christmas to buy presents...
Not long ago, Cadiz's parents finally decided to join the digital age and had broadband internet access installed directly in their home. I was probably the most excited about this because I get excited about these kinds of things. It's who I am. Things went well at first, but then a virus struck the venerable family computer. Cadiz and her brother decided that a new computer would be the perfect Christmas present. That got me all excited again. We settled on a Mac for several reasons, but the most important involved virus concerns. Macs don't really go on sale so much, so this past weekend provided probably the lowest price we were going to find. And that was all well and good because I had been tasked with prepping the computer with all the necessary software as well as moving over some photos and other media the Cadiz parents might like to have and all of that takes a little time. However, yesterday morning's unannounced parental visit produced this unfortunate picture:
I was so flustered I lost my eyebrows.
