Lapdesk of Luxury
Another great invention for the most self-indulgent generation yet.
Kids, you don't even know how good you've got it. When I was your age, I didn't have some fancy laptop desk with a 2" padded cushion for extra comfort when using my laptop. I just had to use my laptop DIRECTLY ON MY LAP. Go ahead and get all the gasping out. Because that's not even the half of it.
Sometimes, on really hot days, the laptop would actually stick to my legs. When I'd pick it up, it would make that shhhhhhppp noise, kinda like when you pull off a Band-Aid. And you know what's even worse? Most of the time, I had to do it IN THE DARK.
That's right. No flexible 12" goose-neck LED lamp that can be adjusted to any angle for this guy. And let me tell ya, there's nothing quite as creepy as listening to that SCREEEWURRRFFFPPPDINGDINGDANGDANGSCREEE of the dial-up modem in completely darkness. NOTHING I SAY. I still shudder every time someone utters the words "you've got mail." :::SHUDDER:::
