Emotional eating

Alas, alack,
what's wrong with my Mac?
It's stony and silent; the screen has gone black.

I'm all agog:
no chances to blog.
Perhaps it's a sign that God wants me to jog

or ride my bike,
or do something like
the dishes or laundry, or go for a hike.

Oh, God, oh please,
I'm down on my knees:
just don't let my motherboard have a disease

that they can't fix.
Give the guy any tricks
that will get me back into the bloggity mix!

Oh, you will see
what a good girl I'll be
if my Apple is not just a box of debris

but comes back whole,
because I'm on a roll
and wishing to blog for the good of my soul.

Alas, alack,
what's wrong with my Mac?
Sigh. Perhaps I'll feel better if I have a snack.

An apple?

I, my friend, am in the some EEC (Emotional Eaters Club) as you - but I'm working on it. My tactic is to go practice my harp for awhile - very hard to play a stringed instrument with Cheeto dust on my fingers...........

We will overcome!
