I must be one of the few people who does not have a computer.

So, what do I look at? What do I do with my hands that are empty? I read. I watch TV. I walk. A guy (or woman) without a computer is an anachronism, a misfit.

I had a computer once, one of the few people who did.

I knew how to use it. I don’t remember what I used it for. I still have it.

I took it out recently to play with it. It doesn’t work. If I recharged the battery, it would.

I have no intention to do so.

Dead it is and dead it will stay.

Thoughts crossed my mind about buying a computer but that’s as far as I got.

Another factor that I think about is my eyesight. It’s not as good as it used to be. I cannot read for too long. My eyes tear. So – I will do nothing.

I’m getting along fine. I’ll follow the advice of my esteemed doctor.

“Morrie, I don’t know what you are doing, but keep doing it.”

Makes sense to me.
