As I sit here at my desk researching information on Credit Unions for another Blog of mine, I hear the crunch of footsteps through the dry decaying desert weeds. Could it be? I jump up with childlike excitement on Christmas morning and race to the door to meet my Santa Claus for the day. I anxiously wait for him to draw closer, eyeing the package in his arms. He scans the package with his handy technology then requests my signature. Oh ow the anticipation is building as he finishes his task and then hands me my package. The excitement bubbles within me threatening to burst at any moment. “Bless you for delivering my package and have a great weekend!” I shout to the man dressed in purple and black.
SLAM! goes the door.
I flick on the lights as I race into my office. “Quick, where’s the scissors.” Turning I reach for the weapon of choice and gingerly slice through the brown tape. Glorious things have been known to arrive in brown wrapping and today is no different. Quietly it waits to be lifted out of its dark cocoon. The Rebel box emerges into the light of day for the very first time Like a Virgin.
With kid like gloves I begin to unravel the parts within, handling each and every piece as if I were a surgeon transplanting a heart. First, the source of all power must be energized. While waiting for the rejuventing process to be complete…STOP!
How the frell do I insert the memory card? Ah, that is how it is done demonstrates the instructor manual. OK, time to attach the lens. Cool beans, that was easy. Battery charged yet? Nope! Ok, guess I can look like I am learning from the instructor skimming the manual as I place the security device around my neck strap. Hold on a minute, I paid how much for this camera and the strap is cutting into my neck less than a minute in. I don’t think so. Quickly I race through my favorites on Etsy, there she is, my Shutter Sister Jessie, who makes custom camera strap covers.
Ok, so the camera strap is ordered. Probably will take a few days. Battery is still not charged. Damn! Guess I am stuck listening reading to the instructor manual until the battery is charged, all the while reading and commenting on all the blogs of friends that I subscribe to.
