Brown cardboard box.
Inside the front door.
Ah, small package in front.
The bigger box?
4 x 18 x 12
My arms are full.
Mya wants in.
The ground is wet from the steady rain.
What do I do?
The Amazon delivery at my door?
The bags in my hand?
I want to rip the box open.
I need to set other bags down.
Is it possible to handle all simultaneously?
Nope. Only two hands!
Push the door open, set down bags in hands inside the door, pick up Amazon items, carry in, and open, ooh and ah, YES!, open, open, open, plug in, wait,
NOT PATIENTLY WAIT,
MUST WAIT . . . .
With occasional twinges of anxiety-
All that newness,
Crafting my post
On my new chromebook plus.
Bells and whistles not understood
But adjusting to the new keyboard
A new “touch feeling”
A new sound to my fingers pressing the keys
More of a thud.
Not a click, click, click.
Celebrating double clicks.
A new language on the tool bar.
How do you merge anticipation and reality?
How do you learn new things?
Just dive in OR read all the materials first?
What are you looking for in your next NEW device?
