The Other Side of the Screen

Have you ever felt like you were in a fish bowl looking out?

Maybe you've had the feeling that you were in a Petrie dish looking through the wrong end of a microscope.

Perhaps, like me, you've come to the realization that your life is nothing more than a screen-saver.

(Raps knuckles against monitor screen.)

Hello? Hell-ooooo? Anybody out there?

(*sigh*) - I guess not. It's a Saturday night! I suppose people do have a life. I've heard rumors that there are things to do away from the computer. Who knew? Who knew it was true?
....I always thought such things were old wives tales or stories told around a campfire. I'd brushed such ideas away like those stories of urban legends.

There has to be someone out there! (Knock-knock!) Maybe if I put my face up against the screen ... Maybe I can see someone ... Maybe they'll see me.

Hello? Can you see me? I'm right here! Aw, come on. Anybody? Talk to me!

Wait! I see someone! A woman! OMG! Sh-she's naked! Would you look at the size of those ... Hey! I know her. I've seen her HNT pics. Yum-yum! Lucky me ... I get to see her FNT on a Saturday.

Huh? She's moving her mouse ... The cursor is coming to me ... OUCH!
....Bitch! She just poked me in the eye!

NO! Don't change URLs ... Damn! Too late. She's gone. She doesn't call. She doesn't write. She doesn't leave comments. (*sigh*) That's cyber love for you ... Gone with a click of a mouse!

Uh-oh! He's coming back! Gotta run ... See ya!

Editor's note: I stepped away from my computer to have some supper. When I came back, I found the above on my screen. Honest, I don't remember typing any of that. I know I didn't. Who's been messing with my computer, anyway?
....Hmm. It isn't bad. Since I didn't have any idea of what to post tonight ... Why not? I can add a couple of pics too. Not bad, not bad.

You're not alone, Lime. said...

You're a bad boy. I like that in a blogger!

I'm doing laundry at 5 am on Sunday morning - it doesn't get much worse than that. Thank goodness for clementines.

I hope you enjoyed what I wrote while you away eating supper, perhaps you should consider eating in front of the computer so this doesn't happen again.
We used to call those frozen dinners TV dinners eaten on a TV tray, so what would a dinner eaten in front of the computer be called and how about the tray?
just asking, I'm curious that way.

Shoot, thanks for reminding me to wear a robe when I sit down at the computer.

But did you really have to poke me in the eye, Jules? That was the cursor? Wasn't it?

Damned clever author.

Very, very funny.

Thanks for the laugh.

I always make sure I am properly clad when in front of the computer or TV for that matter.
