Looking back, I am old enough to remember the television advertisements for computers in the '80s. As I recall, it was a public service announcement with cartoon characters promising an easier way to file important documents, for dad, and store recipes, for mom. Let's not lament nor belabor the implied sexism. At an especially dumb early age, I recall thinking, "What a waste of time, why would anyone bother to use a computer when they could just write it all down on paper and put it in a file cabinet?". Let's just say, it was a good thing I didn't have an investment portfolio.
So in retrospect, I really wish it hadn't snowed so damn much and maybe if I hadn't said (posted) anything it wouldn't hurt so bad. But I am in no way superstitious! Fingers crossed Mother Nature will go easy on me from here on out.
