Aly scribbled her notes down in her spiral notebook, and a green line appeared under one misspelled word. Aly corrected it with her pencil, and the green line went away. Neato! This new incantation to catching errors in her writing was working wonderfully. It wasn’t even difficult. The computer guys did the hard part when they wrote word processing systems. All Aly did was magick the computer code to work for paper, instead of a big heavy laptop. The spelling spell worked so well she decided to avoid Frappuchinos for a week and use the saved money for an antivirus program. This way, she’d never get a virus. And that idea worked great, too. Aly used to have weekly sniffles, but not anymore. Then, she wanted to be able to think better. She asked the CompUSA clerk if there was a program that made computers faster. After ruling out memory expansion cards, he recommended a RAM doubler. Aly bought it after three weeks of savings – it was a bit expensive because it was a really good RAM doubler. But a brain wasn’t like a hard drive, and Aly corrupted some important brain files in the process. She had lots of room to learn a new language or ace her bio test, but she couldn’t remember a lot of important stuff. Aly had forgotten one vowel, five consonants, twelve of the muscles that caused her to smile, everything except middle C on the keyboard, the number 5 and all multiples, frogs, Antarctica, the concept of relatives, the difference between red and orange, and the basics of locomotion. She wouldn’t have a chance to relearn any of those skills, though. She forgot how to chew, and died after stuffing an uncoughable layer of Wonder Bread down her throat.
