Mornings

26 Sep

There are morning people and there are people who are not morning people.
I’m not the best morning person. I get up when I have to but it takes a while for me to get into the mood of the day.
But this story is not about me. It is about my laptop computer. The one that I’m writing on now.
It used to be a perky little thing – starting up quickly in the mornings when I powered it on. The only problems where when it went to sleep in the afternoon – it would take a bit of prodding to get it going.
Lately this laptop has become groggy in the mornings. It takes about a good 10 to 15 minutes for it to be working smoothly. I’ve poked around trying to get it to work properly. I checked the internet, watched YouTube videos, upgraded good software and removed suspect software.
All too naught.
I’ve learned to live with this sluggish computer. I turn it on and have an espresso. It seems to help.
