I showered. I shaved. I trimmed. I combed. I brushed. I flossed. I tweezed. I washed. 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. I felt ready, confident. I had practiced the striptease earlier in front of the mirror, moondancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” And most importantly, I felt good about the terrific bargain I had gotten at Radio shack — a web-cam at 75% off. Suddenly, her name popped up in Yahoo Messenger. It was time!
Now, have you ever read an O. Henry story, where there is a twist at the end?
Consider this a tale of bad karma. After bragging about my new web-cam for a week, when the time came to use it, I couldn’t even get it up and working!
I plugged it into the USB slot, and NOTHING. 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: Don’t be cheap in matters of the heart. Or if you want to strip online with a web-cam, buy a Mac.
(Truth Quotient: 4%. There is absolutely nothing true in this story except for buying this useless, incompatible web-cam at Radio Shack. No wonder why it was so cheap!)
