Help! Help! Having Kindle withdrawal
« on: October 31, 2008, 09:23:52 PM »
Help!  Help!  I left my Kindle at work on Thursday and I can't get it until tomorrow.  That's over 48 hours without my kindle.  I can't check my blogs.  I can't read my book.  I can't read my newspaper.  I was forced to turn on the TV....its the same....blah. 

I was forced to read a real book.  UGH!!  Its hard to hold onto, I practically forgot how to turn pages.  I can't look up words easily so I don't..don't know where my dictionary is.  Couldn't sleep last night. I couldn't change the font size when it got dark.  Now I'm wandering around the house bumping into walls and muttering to myself.  Starting to get heart palpitations and getting all sweaty.  What can I do?

I think at this point the only thing you can do is have a stiff drink and go to bed.

Then get up early and camp out at the front door to your job chanting "open, open, open"

Now, that is one very scary Halloween story. It gave me serious chill bumps.

I hope you've learned your lesson from this experience! (Note to self: do not leave Kindle out of sight -- ever!)

Close your eyes, put your hands in Kindle reading position, breathe deeply and visualize you're reading it...then have a margarita!
