You're making my life tough this holiday season. My husband is already impossible to shop for. There are very few things he wants. This year he has just one thing on his list and only YOU, dear Google, can get it for him.
You see, last week, you introduced something called the Cr-48 Chrome Notebook. I heard you have like 60,000 of these things shipping out to people around the US. And trust me, have I heard all about it. Louis, for whatever reason, thinks he should have one. He talks about nothing else. He says he signed up even though many of his friends just had them show up at their door.
It's not that we need another gadget in our home mind you. I'm practically tripping over iPads and laptops and Android tablets as it is. But every time the doorbell rings, or the mailman drives up, or I come upstairs to the office to show another package that has come for the Christmas season, the only thing Louis says is “Google?” And when I tell him “no” those sad brown eyes look at me with such disappointment. What's a gal to do? I just want to make my man's Christmas merry.
So what's the deal? I think we've been pretty nice to you. We are big fans of your work. After all, both of us use Blogger. We both have Android phones, even though I'm still getting used to mine. Our kids are simply addicted to YouTube. Louis has enough black Google t-shirts to go weeks without wearing the same one. Our newborn sports his own Android onesie, the twins play with a Google soccer ball and yell “robot!” whenever they see the Android logo. So was it something we said?
I'm having a real hard time around here these days dealing with my husband. He just sits and looks out the window, with his Mac laptop sitting unopened, discarded like yesterday's news. And when he is down like this, it’s pretty hard to get him up off his bum and doing important things, like taking garbage all the way to the curb or emptying the dishwasher.
I don't know why he's obsessed, but he is. It's Chrome this and Chrome that. What is CR-48 anyway? I don't dare ask him for fear of getting one of those "you really should know better" kind of looks. It's getting crazy around here.
So Google, can you help me out (make my life a little easier) and please SHIP MY HUSBAND a Chrome notebook as soon as you possibly can? I don't think it will be Christmas without it.
*To clarify- your can't go out and buy one. Google sends them out to people who they think are worthy to test one.
