amy’s choice.

Standard

oh, amy what have you done?

after a bit of an unexplained absence

and when rejoining us outside at her picnic

amy tells us that she was busy inside

setting her mother up with her old iPad

and is already feeling a bit of remorse and worry

that this choice may have created

a life-long need for her tech support

and round-the-clock calls to her

yearning for immediate answers

to the endless questions as to the subtleties and mysteries

contained within the world of apple products.

her brother quickly makes it clear

that he is hands-off

and is not in any way involved in this endeavor.

she speaks openly of her fear

while the only other things we know

that she is afraid of are mascots

though this new level of fear

may have even topped that.

we all reassure her that she is a good daughter for having done this

while at the same time privately harboring

our own personal doubts

about the potential risk/reward factor involved in her choice.

about 3 minutes went by

and this is a picture of amy re-entering her house

after she has been called in

to where her mother sits with her new iPad

and her first ‘question/glitch.’

she looks frightened and unsure of what awaits her inside.

no regrets.

ah, the choices –

to play it safe

 and go for the fudge, chocolate chips, or mint

or to venture into something

a little more adventurous perhaps

like playdough or potholes?

on day 5 with no power

when i log onto their site

to check on the status

i wonder

how many people 

are choosing to click on 

the ‘make payment’ option.

educate yourself about your options and choices. never remain in the dark of ignorance.”

in the end

it was

the magic collapsable cup and the fairies

that won them over.

both are helpful in emergencies

and

you never know when you will need them.

brilliant choices.

“you know, in life there are only three or four

fundamental decisions to make.

the rest is just luck.”
