“Isn’t it beautiful?” Jan showed off his latest acquisition from Radio Shack.
I fumed. “Our electric typewriter works just fine. A computer will end up being another dust collector like your precious Polaroid SX-70.”
“How was I supposed to know the film would cost a fortune?”
Thirty-six years have passed since that day. I’ve acquired my own desktop, scanner-printer combo, a netbook for travel and Jan takes sharp pictures with his iPad.
He reads my story over my shoulder and says with a sly smile, “Lemme get a rag for you.”
“You’ve been at it hours. You’re collecting dust.”
