my dearest macbook,
it’s been over 2 and a half years since we first laid eyes on each other: you, in your sleek white box, and i, a blushing bride. i was wary at first. my dell laptop, so well-loved: dell & i knew each other. but you waited. patiently.
dell & i grew apart… he spent long weekends in his case. i caressed your keys while your dad – my husband – was at work. we flirted until i could take it no longer.

then, there was the blogging. early mornings, late nights – stolen afternoons, my fingers all over your plastic surface. finally, your dad got a new dell and you were mine, all mine!
but this relationship hasn’t been easy. little plastic pieces have started cracking from your delicate exterior. cereal & coffee smudges mar your pristine shell. i’ve used & abused you to the point of nearly crashing. and of course, being a mac, you just took the beating.

it couldn’t last forever. that spark has faded – and your battery has died – and it’s time for me to move on. really, it’s not you, it’s me. i need to run a lot of social media tools and design programs at the same time. seriously, i have a problem. so, i’ve found someone new. he’s younger, bigger, faster. he’s made for me.
but i’ll never forget you, macbook. you never forget your first love.
your scoutie girl
