A nerd is born.
A new computer arrived on our doorstep yesterday. Emmett waited all day for Richard to get home and open the box. Richard wasn't even allowed to eat dinner. The computer had to come out. The box was opened, the new computer was unpacked. The phone rang. I answered it and Richard went outside for a moment. When we both got back to the dining room, the new computer was set up and running.
Richard had to take it apart and install a couple of things, but Emmett wasn't upset. He watched very closely and Richard started teaching him the names of everything inside the tower. Emmett was then allowed to play with the carcass of the old computer. He was in heaven. Who needs toys when you have a dead computer and a screwdriver????
I don't know if I should be impressed or scared.
