not a techie
My husband informed me last week that not only has my blog content taken a turn for the worse, but that my pictures are random and crappy. Since he can apparently do better, I suggested that he take over this week. And here’s what he came up with*:
I Am Not a Techie
Hi Everyone – this is Ali. Ameena is preoccupied with work/whatever it is that keeps her busy and she handed the reins over to me. So I figure this is an ideal time to absolve myself of at least one of her many unfounded accusations. And in this particular post, I’d like to show you why I am not a technology geek.
Just because I happen to have a few extra devices, cords, and cables, doesn’t mean I’m fixated on them. Or that I even know what all of them do. I just like to keep these things around in the event I have to connect to something new or different.
Example: A few weekends ago we were at a friend’s house and they wanted to connect their iPod to their stereo. And guess what? I had the perfect cable stashed in my trunk. (Ameena thought this was hysterical but I’m not sure why being prepared is such a crime.)
I bet you’re all thinking, okay fine, I sort of see the point of cables…but what’s your excuse for all the devices you collect? Well what my wife fails to mention is that I’m not waiting in line for 2 hours to get the latest gadget. I just happen to be in an industry where I have access to these things.
After all, if I sell technology, I have to test it and know how it works, right?
So there you have it…I’m not a techie but a person who is involved in technology for valid, work-related reasons. Much in the same way Ameena claims watching HGTV is “research” for her work in reality TV.
The only difference? I don’t have a blog forum to make fun of her obsession with Million Dollar Listing.
