The Curse... dum dum dum

I have a curse.

I didn't know I had this curse until recently, but I do have it.

I have magic fingers that with extended use of a computer, will break it.

It is a good thing My Love is so techy, hu?

Even with his techiness, he can't stop my magically cursed fingers.
Don't believe me? Lets jump back to my childhood.

We had a great DOS computer. You know, the kind with the black screen and the blinking green cursor. It even had real floppy discs... the floppy ones!

As a child I would play games on it like Headline Harry, Striker and Eggbert. One day the computer stopped working. To this day the blame rests squarely on my shoulders. I really have no idea what I could have done to break it, but it has gone to sleep in a junk yard in India (it's true, I read about it in National Geographic. There were pictures, and I saw the green cursor pointing accusingly at me.)

My sibblings rarely let me play on the new computer when we got it, so it was virtually safe from me.

When I was in college my friend built me a computer. He was a great friend! One day I turned it on, and absolutely nothing came up on the screen. A tech savy friend came over to look at it, and nothing happened. He couldn't fix it.

At work something always happened to my computer. I think they replaced it three times.

After I got married and had a baby... okay fine, after I started blogging, I used the camera connector cord... which mysteriously no longer works.

Since I couldn't put pictures on the computer anymore, I started using my hubbie's laptop. As of last week, I can no longer put pictures on this computer either. He can't fix it. He doesn't know what is wrong with it. I have killed this computers picture downloading capacity because I used it the most.

I really think I have a problem. Is there some sort of help group I can go to?

"Hi, my name is Amy and I kill computers."

"Hi, Amy"

At any rate, until my genius husband can find a way to fix it, you will no longer be able to see my picture taking prowess, and all pictures from here on out will either be repeats, or googled.

If anyone knows a cure for this malady, I will do it! As an IT specialist, my husband may be in danger. I may be hazardous to his career. There is no research for this curse, and I may or may not be contagious. Not to mention all the helpless computers he may bring home. Right now he has one quarantined downstairs so it should be fine.

Any info on this unique yet terrible problem would be helpful. You can respond here, or send it to my email... until I manage to inflict sudden death on them. By then there may be no help. Run, run for your lives! Hide your electronic devices before I destroy them all and put us back into the dark ages!
