There are many times in my life where I have gotten my ass in trouble. However, I can't recall a time where my ass got me in trouble.
That changed Friday night when I read the following email from someone who claimed to be me on Facebook:
I found this video of you from high school. You can see your ass in it. Check it out.
Dumbfounded, I clicked on the link anticipating me and some shot of my ass. What I got instead was nothing but a flashing screen on my computer that quickly turned blue. That blue screen has not changed in four days and I no longer have a working computer in my home.
My ass video turned out to be nothing more than a virus that killed my computer completely. As if that wasn't bad enough, the ass that sent me the video claiming to have my ass in it also shipped the email to all my friends on Facebook. There is nothing like pissing off people you haven't seen since high school. I am sure they can't wait to see my ass this summer at our 20th Reunion.
I was notified Tuesday afternoon that my computer needs to be rebuilt and everything on my hard drive is lost. No more working on lesson plans, no more checking email, and no more blogging from home.
I don't know how long it will take before I get my computer back, or when I will be able to start writing again on a daily basis. The computer tech in charge of my job told me to remain patient and that when I get it back, it will be better than new.
What I do know is that I will never let the lure of my ass get the best of me again.
