A Blonde Buys Curtains

A Blonde Buys Curtains

A blonde goes into a store that sells curtains. She tells the salesman, "I would like to
buy a pair of pink curtains." The salesman assured her that they had a large selection of pink curtains. He showed her several patterns, but the blonde seemed to be having a hard time choosing.
Finally, she selects a lovely pink floral print.
The salesman asked what size curtains she needed.
The blonde replies, "Fifteen inches."
"Fifteen inches?" asked the salesman, "That sounds very small. What room are they for?"
The blonde says, "Oh, they are not for any room - they are for my computer monitor."
The surprised salesman replies, "But, Miss, computers do not have curtains."

The blonde says, " Hellooooooooo - I've got Windows."

You know... I kinda groaned, too. But then I started thinking that wasn't such a crazy idea. When the monitor is not on, it's just something ugly sitting on my desk. I could actually SEE having some decorative "mini-curtains" with nice fabric and hardware concealing the front of it. When using the computer, the curtains would open and would still provide a nice 'frame' for the screen... Hmmmm...

(sorry, I have kind of an 'inventor's mind')

Sounds like a nice business Z. Let me know when they are on the market.

I'll take a light blue pair with daisys all over them. :)
