Okay, I love my wife. I promised to stay through sickness and health, as long as we both may live, all that stuff. I know that a life of Christian service is supposed to be the highest ideal.
But I miss my GeekBook(TM). In another lifetime - pre-children - when funds flowed as freely as the wine, I would have bought and accessorized another Kindle by now. Alas, The ZeroNewburys have fallen on hard times, and I must wait with the patience of a saint as my darling wife's recovery from (successful) surgery slowly passes.
Who knows what depth of Kindlelove she'll feel by the time she is ready to go back to DTBs? Is it possible that a complete conversion to Kindlearianist is taking place? How do I know she's lot looking at FeedBooks right now? What will I do when the serpent hisses the words 'Oberon' and 'DecalGirl' and 'Borsa Bella' in her ear?
All the change I had hoped to dump into the CoinStar machine may now have to wait. And grow. and become the price of GeekBook2(TM).
