As Precautionary Measure
As precautionary measure...
I backed up all software
resident on fifteen inch
Macbook Pro computer
yesterday December first
two thousand twenty two
courtesy two terabyte
Seagate external drive.
Hardware not necessarily superfluous
when associating, assessing, and assaying
true value to equipment constituting
kit and caboodle - paraphernalia
such as router, screen, keyboard, et cetera
encompassing accessing the Internet.
Yours truly recognized the wisdom
to undertake aforementioned proactive
self motivated directive
regarding protecting data
(applications, documents, files, et cetera)
despite purchasing refurbished said laptop
two plus weeks ago
in the unforeseen event
some unexpected malfunction
renders impossible mission
to access precious literary endeavors.
Though I subscribe to icloud storage
no idea in the webbed wide world
where such information of mine stored,
hence to stave off
unforeseen technological catastrophe,
(where ghost in the machine
possess potential to deliver
a haunting nightmare), thus
I resort to a multitude of intelligent steps
minimizing distress if crisis occurs.
Each travail affecting mein kampf
(not just those linkedin
to technological trappings)
offer an object lesson
and/or an opportunity to test
coping skills of one modest male.
As a for instance,
an exercise (testing patience of
Steve Job's ghost) occurred
prior to purchasing computer at hand
acquiring MacBook Pro
(Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015),
from Paul Reader
part business owner at Mac Mojo.
He profusely apologized,
when initial acquisition
(prior to the one witnessing myself
typing at these words)
failed to function after I plunked down
a tidy sum defying
his acute natural mechanical dogged bent.
Similar to proactive actions taken
to buffer oneself against
technologically sophisticated contrivance(s)
exhibiting er... failure to boot
(analogous to being assertively prepared
for electronic fiasco),
I consider challenges of marriage
analogous to summon forth
essential roll with the punches adaptation.
Offtimes, the missus,
(whether deliberately or unwittingly)
affects me with serious thoughts,
whereby I envy the life
of Norwegian bachelor in general
or wishing to splurge upon potential
persons who profess and attest
genetically endowed as she
i.e. the fairer able,
eager, ready and willing
to surrender herself in situ way shun,
and evanescence of delicto flagrante
in particular despite anonymous woman,
(perhaps a Goo Goo doll)
in question being a felon.
