My husband walks into my office. Bragging. “With any luck, my new 4.0 GHz machine will be installed in my office today. Probably before noon.” He practically swaggers with pride at this announcement.
I am staggeringly unimpressed by the news. “I don’t see what you’re so excited about. After all is said and done, you’re still stuck using a Windows machine.” I look meaningfully at my Mac.
The husband thinks for a while, grasping for reasons that this is a good thing. Finally, he replies, “Well, I can still do e-mail and web surfing on it!”
