Yes, it is THAT important

“Dude, you almost done with that?”

“Yeah, just a second, I’m regulating some body fluids right now.”

“Ok, well, I just took some aspirin, so I could use the kidney if you’re almost finished.”

“Give me a minute, I’m almost finished.”

“I’m just saying! You’ve had the kidney for a while now and I need it the minute you’re done.”

“I forgot my kidneys at the apartment, so can’t you just use one of the other ones?”

“I could, but that one is mine and I have all my blood and stuff already organized in there, so as soon as you’re done, I want it back. Plus, the kids are using the other ones, and those are small and stuff.”

“You act like this is the only kidney in the house and you’ll just die if you don’t have it.”

“If you wanted to process waste out of your body this weekend, you should have remembered to bring your own kidneys. It’s sort of an important part of your life, you know.”

“I know, I know!  I just forgot, ok?”

“How do you remember your liver and your pancreas, but forget to pack your kidneys?”

“I was in a hurry and wanted to get packed. I forgot. Just let it go.”

“I can’t, you still have my kidney.”

“Oh JEEZ! Here. You happy now?”

“Yes, thank you, you can have it back when I’m done.”

Insert “computer” everywhere you see “kidney” and that’s pretty much how it goes when Peter and I have to share a laptop for the weekend.

    You’re hilarious! I would go nuts if I had to share a computer with my hubby when he was home though!

    We used to share a home computer.

    Then I got tired of never getting online.

    Oh crap, you had to share? That’s just inhumane if you ask me.

    This is why I bring my work laptop home every night. Otherwise, I’d NEVER have a kidney.

    Oh…HA! That was so funny! I sure am glad it was a computer issue, and not really a kidney issue…lol!

    Sharing a computer…yeah, I know all about that, since we only own one. I know, I know, but we just can’t afford another one right now. Three kids kind of suck up all the extra money. (I’m sure you know nothing about that!) LOL!

    Frankly, I think I’d rather share a kidney than a computer.

    You’re hilarious.

    At first I had a bit of trouble following the story…but after realizing that the computer was the kidney, I concur. 🙂 I would liken a computer to a kidney any day…possibly even lungs or brain. I live in Egypt, and it would triple the nation’s deficit to get the internet at my house. After being spoiled by cable at the office, I REFUSE to use dial-up (the only other option for home.) Fortunately that means I’m not forced to share with anyone…spouse or kids. 🙂 I like it that way.
