All is back to normal. The Kid is gone. Took a little while for me to adjust, but by Friday morning, I was back to chatting up strangers, breaking hearts, and making trouble.

I gave my two presentations today at the science festival. They went well, but I didn’t have nearly enough time. Only 45 minutes. I think I usually took an hour and a half for this kind of thing. The problem is that I like to talk. I talk a lot. And once I get started, I have a hard time quitting. We talked about input, output, memory, cpus, motherboards, operating systems, and applications. We talked about what company names they know and what those companies do.
Then we took apart computers. Most of the machines I had were PCs. There is a reason why I prefer getting PCs and not Macs. First off, doesn’t this machine look so sad? Lying here, waiting for its death.
In the end, I think I was the only one injured. I just get so excited when helping. At some point, I saw my hands. They were filthy. Then I saw blood. Oops. I forgot to bring bandaids. Always forget that part. Oh well, only a flesh wound.
