My first spreadsheet went without a hitch
I'm delighted with everything I’d achieved,
but my new computer develops a glitch -
I'm distraught and feel very aggrieved!

My spreadsheet file has just disappeared,
my hubby Peter hears my loud scream
A fatal system error is worse than I feared -
is this the end of my ‘excel’lent scheme?

I ask my hubby what can he do
as I recount my terrible tale;
I cuss until the air turns blue
pounding all keys, but to no avail

He sits me down with a cup of tea,
and Valium to help me calm down;
but sadly all my hubby can see
the ‘screen of death’ in orangey brown

It‘s then I admit what the file was for -
a kcal counter to help us lose weight,
so I’m heading off to the candy store;
my spreadsheet glitch, I'll put down to fate!

We all have it happen, again and again, if we are not forgetful, or worse yet, when we are forgetful... lol... Great write. Ann

G'day Jan … a back up Jan. Don't trust a computer. New computers have driven me nuts. Like with you; a block of dark chocolate fixes all - thanks Jan - Lindsay
