Today as Young Ladrinka and I were walking to school, I said that I really didn’t want to go to work today. This turned out to be an incredible coincidence and Young Ladrinka told me that he, too, did not want to go to school today so we should just go home and relax.
And it was tempting. But as a positive role model and Murderer of All Things Fun in the First Degree, I had to say no.
But for a few moments there, the world was our oyster.
Speaking of oysters, (awkward transition alert!) I got a notice from Amazon that the time is running out to buy an extended warranty for my Kindle Fire. You can only buy it within 30 days of buying the Kindle. And Amazon is kind enough to give you examples of the kinds of accidents you could be facing:
Years of Accident Coverage for your Kindle
The vast majority of Kindle failures occur because of accidents. With the 2-Year Warranty + Accident Protection for Kindle, you are protected starting from day one if breaks occur because of an accident, for example:
* Your child knocks it off a table
* The dog chews it
* You drop it in water
* It gets stepped on
How is compiling this list of accidents for Amazon not the best job that anyone can have?
I can just see the first drafts:
Your child chews it.
Your cat knocks it off the table.
You step on your dog who then steps on the Kindle.
Paula Deen covers it in bacon and eats it.
So I’m filled with indecision today. Should I get the extra warranty coverage against accidents?
See? If I played hooky like wise Young Ladrinka advised, I could think this through properly.
