There is something I've needed to get off my chest for quite some time and I thought it was about time I confide in you, the loyal readers of this blog. You see, for the past 6 months I have been living a double life. Living one way by day, another by night. Kind of like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but without all the secret potions and weird side effects.
Though, I have had considerable trepidations about revealing this dark secret, one which I've been carrying around with me for what seems like forever. I had to stop and think about how revealing this information would affect not only myself, but my family as well. I mean, what would others think of me? What would my parents say? Would the head of my legal department be teased at school? etc, etc, etc... The list goes on and on.
With all of that to consider, I've made my decision. It's time to come clean.
So on this day, the First of April, I, Joe Schmidt, being of sound mind and body, do hereby declare that....
wait for it..
wait for it..
I am the proud owner of a Mac.
There, I said it.
Whew. I feel like the weight of a thousand Bill Gates has been lifted from my shoulders. For those who do not know me, I work as an IT guy during the day, tending to an environment comprised mostly of PCs (though we do have one Mac). And every chance I get I've slammed the Mac and Apple whenever the situation presents itself. Yet, I toil away on this blog every night on a Mac.
Yes, my hypocrisy knows no bounds.
For those naysayers out there who think this might be one of those crazy April fools jokes I present to you this:
But then again, this could be a picture of some Mac Mini I pulled off of the Internet.
Happy April Fools day. And Happy 30th birthday Apple.
