What a first year we have had together. It's been nothing short of amazing and so much more fulfilling than any other relationship I've had. The fact that we have gone a whole year without an argument, a tiff or me ever wanting to throw you through a window has been nothing short of a miracle.
When I was with Hewlett we fought all the time. He was difficult and oh so temperamental! It would take forever to get him to open up when we had trouble. He would just sit there with a frozen stare and often times just shut down. And when he was angry he had the nerve to completely destroy all my pictures. Imagine that!
Before that it was Toshiba. We had fought even more than Hewlett and when I switched relationships I thought I was improving my life. Wow, was I ever wrong! I finally felt as though I had to make the break. I had to make a big change in my life or I felt as though I would go mad.
A lot of people had told me I should meet you. I was afraid though as I had only played in the little leagues so to speak and I knew you were in the big leagues; "the show". When I first met you I was terribly intimidated. You were so sleek and elegant - so simple yet so complex all at the same time. I didn't know if I was worthy.
Yet, I took the plunge. I had a tough time understanding you at first as you were so different than any of the others. What I didn't realize was that once I were to get past the initial period of adjustment, I would never be able to figure out why it took me so long to make the move.
Now, it's been a whole year. I cut the ties with Hewlett and Toshiba and I see they are having trouble staying in the market. They are getting older and just aren't as advanced and sophisticated as the likes of you. Plus, I never did as many things with them as I do with you! That's the most exciting part of our relationship, the fact that we can spend so much time together and I am never bored.
The only thing you ever do that puts me in a bit of a tizzy is when you throw the spinning wheel of death at me. You don't do it very often and it's usually very unexpected. Perhaps you do that just to keep me on my toes and for me to realize that nothing in the world is perfect. That's the one thing that I have found to irritate me. But as long as you keep it at a minimum, I'm okay. Just maybe explain it to me someday.
So, thank you for a great first year together. I feel on top of everything we have become best friends. We all know that is the basis for a great relationship. Here's to many more years together.
Love and kisses,
Your Apple dumpling
