Me: Stop it. Man up.
SH: But, but, but.
Me: It's unbecoming.
SH: But I've had a hard week.*

SH: But it's been a really bad week.
* He has. He had a big computer failure on Monday afternoon and spent 12 hours trying to fix it. No. He had not backed up his hard drive. Fortunately, it's not the hard drive; it is the motherboard (insert your own joke here) and he has been able, with the help of a Special Cable overnighted via amazon.com, to use the little notepad computer he got me to hook into his hard drive. Still, he has had to load all his software, etc.
