Fairy Tale Friday

The girls at Teddy Bo Towers are not the most high tech bunch. In fact they run an old computer that's still got Windows 95 on it. It can just run basic paint packages, and laughed when they tried to install Photoshop.
And finally, the blue screen of death arrived and didn't disappear when they rebooted it, so the girls decided to call in an expert. Jonathon arrived in his little van full of repair equipment. He swaggered into the studio and had a look. He did the basics, reboot and if that doesn't work, reboot again. When that didn't work, he opened his case and pulled out his tools. He pulled out a small box with wires and two paddles, turned to the girls who were crowding around him (someone touched his bum!) and said 'Clear', rubbed the panels together and ran an electric charge through the computer. The screen flickered for a second then returned to that blue screen. "Clear", the second and then third attempts didn't work either. He put the unit away and pulled out a voice recorder "Time of death, 3:30 PM Tuesday 27th November 2012", he then tucked his recorder back in the case, closed it up and left, the girls distraught, not just because the computer was now deceased, but he never eve chatted any of them up. Not like the local builder did. Jonathon wasn't getting a Christmas card this year!
"Oh well", said Gayle, "Time to get a replacement. Girls to the van"
They bumped up and down over the roads towards Shady Computer Depot to look at what was on offer. A large showroom full of electronic gadgets, and single, geeky, spotty men who were not picky. The girls had a ball. "What's this thing","it's a mouse" was the reply. You could see half a dozen young men getting more and more exasperated trying to explain technology as these older ladies were moving closer and closer. Only Dan who was being pursued by Gina seemed happy enough, but he was the assistant manager, and had experience of this before.
Then a scream came from an older man who had just emerged from the office. It was Mr Burns, the man who sold them the computer 15 years ago. The pain of that time was still as strong today as it was all those years ago, and he collapsed onto the floor.
An ambulance arrived to take him away (he made a full recovery, though jumps at any loud noise), and Colette managed to get the new computer ordered. Dan even came over to the towers to install it. Maybe there may finally be some romance in Teddy Bo Towers.
The computer works fine, though no one's quite sure how to work it.  But thank goodness the computer's linked up as the girls were able to make some fantastic
