Day 2015: There are two sides to every adventure

Yesterday, when I was having adventures, I saw this:

Last night, there were two sides to my adventures with my non-responsive laptop at the Apple Store. On one side of the store, we met the multi-sided Apple Genius Niko (who writes children’s adventure books on the side).

Niko is showing us his smiling side there. When he looked at my well-worn laptop (which has been by my side for years of blogging adventures), he showed his concerned and worried side. When I told him that my son and I had likely accidentally switched our look-alike chargers, he said the higher wattage of my son’s charger might have been too adventurous and powerful for the charging side of my little laptop.

Here’s the side of my son’s charger:

Here’s the side of my laptop’s charger:

Watt a difference 15 watts can make. The adventures of my little laptop are over. On the one side, I’m going to miss that little adventurous laptop. On the other side, I’m getting a new, faster blogging machine on the other side of two days.

When I was having adventures on two sides of Boston’s Downtown Crossing yesterday, I recorded two musical performances with my adventurous iPhone:

There are at least two sides to every photo I share here:

I’m always having a nice day when I can express thanks to all who help me create this blog and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. When the new laptop arrives, Ann, we can break out into the verse of “Watt a difference a day makes …” You’ll get a charge out of the new powers of the advanced technology, I hope.

  2. I hate when that happens. My wife had the same experience because just because two power supplies appear to be the same, they tell two very different stories.

  3. Like a tale of two cities Boston and Geelong, both different sizes, and vintages, with incompatible chargers…..

  4. It is always an adventure when we go out in the car, because when Jackie points out something on the right side there is a more than 50% charge that this will be the wrong side; and I’ll be left wondering

  5. What a cute house! Do you know whose it is, or was it just something you liked?

  6. Charles Frohman, the producer who helped bring “Peter Pan” to the stage, was on the Lusitania. His last words are said to have been “To die would be an awfully big adventure.” There are many sides to every adventure but the important thing is seeing life as one.

  7. You walk through the most interesting parts of town! Of course, it helps that you have your eyes open! I’m glad you’re getting a new laptop. Hope you like it. It’s too bad about the old one.
