Like Driving Past An Ex’s House Without Violating The Terms of The Court Order

After five plus years of dedicated service the the Be The Boy cause my old Dell desktop PC was finally put out to pasture.  All of the files had been moved to my new Macbook and the old hard drive had been wiped clean.  It was quietly removed from the house after powering down for the last time on Thursday night.

Ever since taking the final step in my change to a Macbook I have been walking over to my desk expecting to see that old PC to only to be surprised to find the desk empty.  This will take some getting used to.  Is there such a thing as “Phantom PC Syndrome”?

    As with phantom limb syndrome, intensity will vary. Replacing the PC with something festive on the desk will help. I suggest a lovely floral arrangement or rotting sheep’s head. The latter is prone to foul odor but is a fun surprise every time you glance at the empty desk.

  2. It’s better than the Phantom Poop I smell at least once a day.

  3. I’m sure that it misses you, too. When the machines rise up and begin to take us all out, it’ll come back for you.

  4. But are you in love with your MacBook?

    I tried to think of something pithy to say as it’s been a while since I’ve said something pithy. Can’t think of a damned thing.

    Splunge.

  6. Oh honey! There are other Dells in the sea! *hug* come on over, you just need to play with someone else’s PC to get over her!
