A Birthday Search Excerpt:

A woman stepped into the room where the family computer was kept. Kelly the Computer was sleeping on the big desk in the corner of the room. The woman sat down in front of Kelly and gently tickled her keyboard to wake her up. 


Kelly yawned and awoke as her screen slowly brightened.  She silently greeted the woman, happy to be able to help her. Kelly wondered what the woman might need from her today. Almost every day, the woman needed to use the email services on Kelly’s hard drive. Often, the woman used programs installed in Kelly to write letters or other documents. And sometimes, the woman just liked to play the games that were inside Kelly. Kelly always liked that, because it was fun to watch the woman smile while she played.


But Kelly’s favorite thing to do was help the woman find things on using her internet search engines. Kelly never stopped feeling amazing by how much wonderful information she could help the woman find. Once Kelly had heard the woman talking to someone about what she called “the old days,” before Kelly existed. The woman said that in those days, people didn’t have computers in their house and could not search for information or pictures so easily. It was very hard for Kelly to imagine what that would have been like!
