‘Let me have a go,’ says I. ‘I’ve not had a chance yet. You keep hiding it.’
‘Not bloody likely’, he replies. ‘Not with your track record.’
That may seem mean to those who don’t know me – but he has a very valid point. I do have a lamentable track record with anything electronic or battery operated.
Most people wonder what it wold be like to have a superpower. Telepathy, telekinesis, healing or some such. Mine is not nearly so handy. My superpower was demonstrated just this week when we were off out somewhere unfamiliar, and , whilst Peter was clearing frost from the windscreen I typed our destination into our Satnav.
It failed twice in my hand, returning to the start screen seconds after finding the map. I thought nothing of it when our driveway is between two tall buildings. Lack of signal, not a problem … It failed a third time less than a mile down the road – and fell off the windscreen for good measure. Peter pulled over and reset it – and presto – it behaved as a satnav should…
And why? Because – dear readers – my superpower is to kill electronica of all kinds! Heaven help us if either of us ever needs a Pacemaker!
Meanwhile if I want to use a tablet it seems I will have to get my own because the one we have is off limits!
