Bob gasped, gaping at his computer and at the dreaded blue screen. What the heck?!
His second thoughts were, Oh no! My dashboard, my blogs!
The previous re-bootings and warnings had seemed inconsequential at the time. Then, blue screen panic appeared to be more TV and its tendency toward sensationalism than truth.
All the bloggers' mayhem and panic about the hackers who called themselves “the Atomic Crashers” had finally hit his precious computer. Damn them!
Humbled, Bob considered the options. Being non-denominational when it came to tech repair stores, he tossed a coin: Heads—Best Buy. Tails—Staples.
Every Wednesday, Delores at Under the Porch Light provides bloggers with six challenging words with which to create a short story, poem, prose, or whatever. The underlined words above are this week's challenge. Let me just say, these were not easy.
