Buyers, Beware?


The year is 2214, and your computer’s dusty hard drive has just resurfaced at an antique store. Write a note to the curious buyer explaining what he or she will find there.

Dear Curious Buyer,

I’m glad you have decided to look at this antique we call “Hard Drive”. A little bit about me, I’m not a celebrity or a millionaire. My life is no glamorous. I’m just a simple person who likes you, has fears and dreams. In this hard drive you will have my lovely treasures and my precious things.

This is what you will find:

  1. Family pictures from my childhood, my kids and my grandkids. I do have a lovely family and my grandkids are my heart and soul.
  2. My favorite music, especially the Latin music. You will dance as the rhythm of the Salsa and have fun.
  3. My unfinished memoir. I have been trying to finish it. You will get to know about all my fears and how I have been struggling to get to the finish line.
  4. A few short stories that I wrote when I was just a teenager.
  5. My personal papers such as my marriage license, birth certificates, resumes, and a few love letters that I keep from my husband.
  6. One home movie that only last 3 minutes that has my mother on it. That is one of my favorite treasures.

As you can see there’s nothing glamorous, but you’ll know the love of a wife, a mother, and a grandma for her family.

So please, try to enjoy what I left on the hard drive and use it wisely.

  1. Love letters from your husband. That is so sweet. One can tell a lot about a person from what they have on their computer. My list is very similar to yours, minus the music which I have none of.
