February 28, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the term backup. You can back up or have a backup, just go where the prompt leads!
My computer kept telling I had not backed up for over two hundred days. I finally relented and plugged it in to my portable hard drive.
Few lights flashed, and then silence. I thought it should take longer than that? Shouldn’t it? So I did it again and the same result. So after all that time of ignoring what I eventually assumed was an important task, it was all over in seconds. What an anti-climax.
Everytime I log on now up pops a notice to say I need to backup. I’m ignoring it again. Probably to my own peril?

I always thought it was a big deal to do a backup… Easy Peasy 🙂
That’s a message that could drive a person bonkers! But it’s a good habit to cultivate.
Thanks for reminding me. No, not that backup, but the virus scan is overdue/ 🙂
Glad I could help 😀
We all need a backup
In more ways than one Bill.
