It was now or never. Have the surgery that could correct the childhood injury which left me very little functioning of my left hand or leave as it has been for the last 30 years. I decided to go for it but didn’t take into account all of the things I wouldn’t be able to do for 5 weeks with a cast on. Wear long sleeve shirts, tie my shoes, style my hair, clean my nails, put deodorant under my right arm! So you know if I can’t do those things, I certainly can’t type productively worth a lick.
The woman in me that needs to write something began to look for dictation software for my computer and came up with nothing. Then, lo and behold, I discovered that my MacBook Air has built-in dictation. However, it works like crap! So to the Apple store I went.
A wonderfully pleasant guy assisted me. Got my computer together and offered me a demo of the new Apple Airbuds. Only $159. Great Christmas present, he suggested. He’s right. But I wasn’t buying them for anyone else or myself that particular day.
But, I did, however, purchase a 1 TB external hard drive. Go figure. That had absolutely nothing to do with the dictation issue I went there for.
Something about that bright white shiny stuff in the store that’ll have you buying something.
