Helped by unhelpful technology

I brought my pad to work to squeeze in a few minutes, but the day was pretty crazy and that didn’t happen (scarfed lunch in about 3 minutes, stomach still not thrilled by that). Until the very end. I went to shut down the laptop to come home, but a bunch of Windows Updates were pending and I had to wait for them to finish before I closed up. At first, I was frustrated and anxious to get home, but when I realized I wasn’t going anywhere, I remembered the pad, and got ten minutes of some good dialogue in.

There’s an up-side to everything.
