Late yesterday afternoon my internet connection went funny. I could connect and check my email but nothing else - no browsing web sites, nothing.
I thought I could live without the net but my life was hollow and empty. I missed it like the newly-in-love miss their partners after a first weekend of togetherness. I threw myself on the bed and wept bitter tears into my pillow. I tried to distract myself, saying I didn't need it. But I did. I did.
This morning I rang my ISP and they had me back online within minutes. I embrace my web connection in joyous reunion.
