Amazon Prime has been created by a woman, I am certain. I can see her standing at her front door, tapping her foot and saying, “Dammit! Christmas is in two days! I ordered this gift from Amazon ten days ago, and where is it? Where is it!!”
This woman has a doctorate in electrical engineering and computer design. She has written multiple programs, successful programs used by Apple, Microsoft, and all the big places. She has written and designed for military and government. She even had lunch with Walter O'Brien.
Where is this gift, she wonders, as she grits her teeth.
This woman slams the door, and retreats into her immaculate home office, organized down to the very pencils on her desk which are sharpened and lined up line little soldiers.
She creates Amazon Prime. Maybe, but this is from my mind.
I am waiting for a “Janome Hello Kitty Sewing Machine”. I already have a monster Janome, weighs a good twenty-five pounds. But taking it to my quilt club is nigh impossible, thus I have ordered this heavy duty but lighter weight Janome.
