Silicon For Breakfast?

Not exactly. But it’s summer and it’s hot, and a laptop on the lap is too hot sometimes. They do make laptop stands, but I’ve never seriously considered one. But last night, as my thighs were melting, I had a stroke of genius! At least a stroke of re-purposefulness.

I have a wooden breakfast tray that my parents gave me, probably as a joke, when I was a teenager. I’ve had it 30 years or so and used it maybe once or twice…

Turns out it’s just the first size for my laptop, and works great with the legs folded or not. If the legs are extended I can it works best on keeping my cool, AND I can sit on the coffee table when I get up and it’s high enough that I don’t have to move my cup!

Score one for the blind hog!
