March 9, 2005Michael "Rhymes With" SwellCEO, Swell Computer Corp.Some AddressWho the Hell Knows Where Soon to be replaced by a 30 year-old brunette woman.Dear Mr. Swell:My name is La Nina and The Cow* broke my heart. It was a two year relationship that started off well enough. We worked well together and I was happy. As far as I was concerned, I had the world in my apartment.
However, it was a matter of time before I started experiencing the shut-downs during which all communication would simply stop. I tried so desperately to make things work. I made no less than twenty attempts to get things fixed as I cajoled, kowtowed, and cried in order to facilitate some sort of change. Nothing happened. Then, after over two months of effort on my part, it was agreed (albeit reluctantly on The Cow's part) that there was a serious problem, and The Cow was sent off to rehab.
Upon The Cow's return I saw absolutely no evidence of a conversion, despite the money spent on treatment. My frustration level was at an all-time high as I observed the useless pile of junk in my living room. How could the doctors determine that The Cow as eligible for release? Did they not do any observations or run any tests? And now that everything was in shambles, what on earth was there left for me to do?
Well, I had little choice but to let go of all of the time and effort and heart I'd invested into this relationship, and kicked "The King of Freeze" to the curb.
So now I turn to you.
I'm looking for a new relationship, a long-term partnership if you will. No more of the pleading late-night phone calls. No more anger and frustration. Just a happy, peaceful co-existence together filled with learning.Can Swell offer me any assistance in achieving my goal?
I eagerly await your reply. Until then I remain an eternally optimistic
La Nina*also known as something rhyming with "freightway"(Thanks to p-dookie for supplying the idea to this entry)
