Power Charger

** #PE ** I love to call myself “Alzheimer”.

Actually I am not, and neither do I suffer from real dementia. My problem is with my short memory. Yet it is so much simpler and more comfortable to blame somebody else when something goes missing, and things go missing in my home at least every 2-3 hours. “Alois, don’t be such a German, give it back”, I murmur to the apparent amusement of The Cat. It never helps, but I feel free of any responsibility.

Quite recently, I lost both chargers for my accus, and I need a lot of power for my old camera, my #Family, Supershot SX1. I obviously did not really lose them – I just cannot find them, and eventually, after 10 days, I decided to buy a new one and started googling. Lazy googling. Given the popular wisdom that all software spies on us, I was not particularly surprised an hour ago to see a new mail in my box. “Telescopic chargers”, it said in the subject line.

I need to mention that my mailer is set for maximum protection: even if I click a certain mail, no attached files, not even pictures are open. Just pure text. It took me a while to try to imagine how my new charger could be a “telescopic” one.

  • And then, I clicked
  • the “show pictures” button…
  • and watched…
  • as the pictures…
  • become visible…
  • and mystery…
  • gets solved.

At $45 per day, it might be just a bit too expensive for a charger.
