The Unauthorized Biography of Rosco P. Coltrane

When it's my moment in the sun, I won't forget that I am blessed, but every hero walks alone, thinking of more things to confess

My Laptop Caught On Fire

If Tuesday wasn't crappy enough, I went to post my next post on my Oaxaca trip and right before I hit the post button my screen went blank. Oh no, I thought. It happens every now and then. My laptop is old and the screen goes on the fritz sometimes. So I touch the screen and I think to myself, wow my laptop sure is hot. Then I saw the smoke. Then I smelt the burning plastic. Then I unplugged the laptop. But the smoke just kept rolling out of it. So, my laptop is pretty much toasted. I might try and see if I can hook up an external monitor so I might be able to save some of my writings, but it might all be lost. I am supposed to be getting a new laptop in the next day or so, hopefully this one will not spontaneously combust...

OK, that really sucks. But you have to admit, that's one of the strangest stories I've ever heard.
