Ha! Apparently, I don't know my own strength! Last night, I went to unplug the computer from the wall socket. When I pulled out the plug, it came off the socket, BUT, it left one of the prongs (the larger, 3rd prong) IN PLACE IN THE SOCKET! Oops! My first thought was to grab my pliers (they have insulated handles, I think) and pull it off, but my second thought was, that might not be such a good idea! I didn't want to go outside to turn off the fuses, and so forth at past 2:00 a.m. and I didn't want to electrocute myself, accidentally! So, I left the prong in place and went to sleep. This evening, I will ask my neighbor across the street if he can attend to it for me.
So now, I need to go to the electronics store and buy a new cord and plug for my computer! As my daughter says, I don't have a lot of luck with computers! In the meantime, I've broken the rules and logged on from the office during my lunch break. I might do a short post when I get home, or I might not. I need to save whatever charge I have left on the computer at home, until I get a new cord for it, tomorrow, or over the weekend (so I can video chat with daughter - they'll have to be short video chats, too! Maybe just to say goodnight.)
In the meantime, I hope you are all having a lovely day. Take care!
