Damned Mouse And Cursed Cursor

Technology is great, but of course it poses its own frustrations — like when the batteries suddenly die in your mouse, the cursor freezes on your screen and can’t be moved, point and click becomes inoperative, and the ghostly “connection lost” notice floats up on your screen.  And, of course, there’s not a freaking AA battery to be found in the house, because nobody except an obsessed survivalist is motivated to actually buy batteries until some battery-operated device conks out — and by then it’s too late.

Hey, what did people do to pass the pre-dawn hours in the pre-internet age?  Play Spider Solitaire on their handheld device?
