I Want a Rolling Buddy

I was at the hospital yesterday, and as I'm sure you know, when you're at the hospital you have alot of time to look around. I found something there that is super cool. It was shoved up in the corner behind a curtain like no one even uses it.

Imagine one of those things that they hook IV's up to with the wheels on the bottom so you can walk around with your butt hanging out of your gown. It was a tall pole like that, on wheels, but on the pole was a massive computer screen. I'm not good with guessing measurements, but I want to say at least two of my laptop screens put toghether so that would be like 34". So the screen was at standing height. Below, at comfortable hand height, was a tray with a keyboard. Strapped to the bottom, above the wheels, was the hard drive.

It was perfect. I could get a long extention cord and wheel my computer around with me all day. Into the kitchen, the living room. Out onto the porch. There it would be, my rolling buddy. Don't get me wrong, my laptop is nice. It's just a bit tricky to use, especially when I'm washing dishes.

You know what? I think I need a rolling buddy right now too. That way I wouldn't have to rest my laptop across my knees, which right now, is kinda painful.

Get one for me too, k?

So, the question remains, will you be letting your butts hang out?
