~Sparks Flew & He Was Right~
September 13, 2018 11:42am CST
Hey everyone... So, I just want to say--ahem. I don't like when my husband is right. There, I admit it and feel better now that it's off my chest! My laptop charger cover came off the other day and I was still using it because...well...I don't have the money for another one. So, I was being careful and especially keeping it away from the little ones. My husband told me it's going to explode or catch fire-please don't use that thing! Of course I didn't listen. This morning I was going about my usual activity here, I reached over the laptop box to grab my pen and POP! The metal on my ring I am guessing disturbed it and sparks flew! My finger is partially black and it's hurting pretty bad but we are alive and okay-grateful no fire took place... Now the laptop cord is in the dumpster and I will have to deal with doing EVERYTHING on my phone again... Could be worse of course so not complaining, well I kind of am but you know. Yeah, yeah, yeah-I know I am a dummy for testing my luck on that cord. RIP laptop cord--you will be missed

Your not a dummy but at least your not complaining. You knew right from wrong. I am sure happy that was all that happened. Your hubby was wise and so are you to toss it. I had one that was sparking. I am paranoid so it went in the trash. I was not happy but I went on ebay for a new one. For some reason I normally keep them running overnight. The past week I been unplugging and running them while awake. Thank goodness I have changed that. This was a wake-up call. How are you now since this post is days old.

@LovingMyBabies That is very good to know and trust me I know that hurt. The only thing we both are sure of is your house was safe and those babies. Thank you for updating me. have you heard anything about Hately?

The best thing about this is that the accident didn´t get worse and you still have your finger. I haven´t had accidents lately; I remember having one last week when I slide off of the stairs and hurt my knee. Hopefully, it was a minor hurt and I was able to walk normally the same day
