Back in the Motherland

The guy ahead of me in the queue at Gate 7 had a Macbook Pro box from the Apple Store. To make conversation, I said, 'that's a nice toy you've got there!"

He smiled. "Yeah, its the second one I've bought. My wife threw the first one out of the window."

"Why did she do that?"

"She found some pictures she wasn't meant to see.. The next time I go on holiday, I'll keep the experiences to myself. If I meet a woman, she'll be confined to the time I meet her. There's no point trying to relive experiences."

I laugh loud and louder, feeling the sore muscle in my back (a recent swimming injury) complain bitterly. "That's the problem with Macs, its much more difficult to conceal files."

He looked at me with a slight smile. "Its ok, cos there's parallel operating systems. So you can use Windows when you need to."

I have a sense of a lesson only partially learnt. They must have been good pictures.
