The owner of a new-ish laptop has reported it kidnapped! Said owner, Kate Delicious, identifies the alleged suspect as "a young blond girl with blue eyes and a seemingly unbreakable dedication to all things technological".
She goes on to say that she knows the suspect hasn't taken the laptop, a white HP model, far because she does get occasional glimpses of it. "I see the power cord trailing upstairs as the girl runs away from household noise," says Delicious.
When asked why she doesn't confront the suspect, Delicious reports that she can't get a word in edgewise. The same suspect has also allegedly stolen the phone and its accompanying headset. "She's on the phone all day and all night! I just can't get her attention."
No ransom note has been delivered. Delicious doesn't believe that the suspect kidnapped the laptop for malicious reasons, but possibly because said suspect has entered the teen years and can't stand to be out of touch of her best friend for more than a few minutes at a time.
If anyone should happen to email, IM or Skype Kate Delicious, you might be reaching the suspect instead. While the suspect is not believed to be dangerous, teenagers can be volatile, so caution is advised.
