here, here and here.) They come by it honestly.
When my husband and I were visiting our daughter over the weekend, we went out for breakfast one day. Previously we had a bit of difficulty checking email by cell phone so I opened up the netbook we had taken with us.
Most of the time, I can navigate smoothly through most of the steps but when I come to something I am not familiar with, I hand it over to Mr. Computer Guy and let him drive.
It was because of just that type of situation that I had handed him the computer so he could navigate through the various computer thingys. He was totally engrossed in his task while using the touchpad to control the cursor.
Unbeknownst to him, I had taken out the wireless mouse that I like to use. I got my daughter’s attention and mouthed to her, “watch this” as I nodded to the mouse in my hand. I waited for just the right time and began to manipulate the cursor with the wireless mouse.
There were only a few seconds where my ever patient husband looked totally confused by the rogue cursor but being savvy like he is, he quickly figured out my plot. In the meantime, our daughter was doubled over in laughter and that was what made it entirely worth it.
