INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK
by Jan Hurst Nicholson
Yes, humor can also be inspiring. In this humorously inspiring story, Technical Tantrums, Jan tells about her frustrations in living with the constant updates to her computer operating system.
A growing number of people have never experienced life BC (Before Computers), but Jan is NOT one of them. She still regards her latest PC operating system with trepidation. Convinced that a wrongly pressed button can cause serious mischief, she stands anxiously over her computer. In this humorous story, she nibbles cautiously at her fingernails, wondering about the disasters about to befall her. What if the many thousands of words of her yet-to-be-published bestselling novel disappear before she is able to save them to a backup disk? For safety’s sake, maybe she should also hand write that novel in an old fashioned marble notebook. And so begins the humorous story of Technical Tantrums.
