Your Computer is What?!

My mom and little brother bought Max a $5 laptop last week with Windows 3.1 on it. It’s an ancient Texas Instruments with a floppy and clip-on trackball. Max loves it. It stays at mom’s house and Max plays with it when we come over.

We were over there for dinner last night. We were sitting at the table talking like we always do and Max was in the living room playing with his new favorite toy. We heard some frustrated grunting and the stomp of little feet walking towards the dining room. Max opened the door and with a sullen look on his face declared, “My computer’s dick!” Of course, we all lost it. Thankfully, Jen translated for us that his computer’s really just “sick”, but his computer being “dick” is really much funnier. I’m going to start using it in every day parlance. “How’s my computer? It’s dick!”

Think it’ll catch on?
