Breaking Up Isn’t So Hard To Do


Our relationship has lasted for seven years. We’ve gotten used to each other. I admired his solidity, his capacity, his style. He was solid and dependable, but I was looking for something cooler.

And hotter.

And more exciting.

Yeah, he was easy to get along with—easy for me to use for my purposes. He was not as up-to-date as I’d like. Plus he was kind of dumpy-looking. And a bit old-fashioned.

But, yeah, we had some memorable times together.

Quite frankly, he was a bit, er, limited. It was clear, though, that I’d out-grown him and was ready to trade up. These things happen. It's really not his fault.

Of course we’ll still be friends. We’ll still get together once in a while for old time's sake, but—as of yesterday—I’ve moved on.


Goodby Mr. eMac!

Hello, Mr. iMac!

You were aware I was referring to computers, weren't you?

Well, weren't you?
