"Anyway, the issue now is random access memory (RAM). My wife's laptop has a serious RAM deficiency. It's beyond slow, in layman's terms. I knew that her shiny new HP Compaq laptop, running the memory-sucking Vista, should've been more souped up when we bought it 6 months ago at Best Buy. But it was on sale, and I didn't think it would be this slow. I didn't listen to that little voice in my head. Now my wife says she feels like she's back on dial up.

"I know I could research the kind of RAM module she needs, how much she currently has, then buy it and install it myself -- which I've never done. I've heard it's a cinch to install RAM. Heck, there are undoubtedly YouTube how-to videos. But there's a little voice in my head again, and this time it's saying: Don't do it. Put down the tiny screwdriver, if I can actually find that one. I recently snapped one of those opening something (refer to "bull-in-china-shop" kind of guy.)"
