I showered.Â I shaved.Â I trimmed.Â I combed.Â I brushed.Â I flossed.Â I tweezed.Â I washed.Â I dressed, wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and those new colorful new boxer briefs I bought two days ago at Target.
I waited all morning, my new web-cam at my side.Â I felt ready, confident.Â I had practiced the striptease earlier in front of the mirror, moondancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”Â And most importantly, I felt good about the terrific bargain I had gotten at Radio shack — a web-cam at 75% off.Â Suddenly, her name popped up in Yahoo Messenger.Â It was time!Â
Now, have you ever read an O. Henry story, where there is a twist at the end?Â Â
Consider this a tale of bad karma.Â Â AfterÂ braggingÂ about my new web-cam for a week, when the time came to use it, I couldn’t even get it up and working!Â
I plugged it into the USB slot, and NOTHING.Â After a half hour of fiddling with the camera and the drivers, I found some online forum that told me this piece of Radio Shack/Web-Cam for Dummies crap was incompatible with Windows Vista!
Moral of the story:Â Don’t be cheap in matters of the heart.Â Or if you want to strip online with a web-cam, buy a Mac.
(Truth Quotient:Â 4%.Â Â There is absolutely nothing true in this story except for buying this useless, incompatible Â web-cam at Radio Shack.Â No wonder why it was so cheap!)
