Scene 3: Estela gets refreshingly good news from the Apple Store. Her computer is still working, albeit hanging by a thread, but working nonetheless.

Scene 5: Estela rushes to the Apple Store, spends money she doesn’t have, and purchases a computer so big she doesn’t know half the things it can do. Estela becomes distressed when they explain to her the new computer won’t be ready for 3 days. Distraught and confused as to what life will be like without said computer, Estela hangs her head like a sad puppy and goes home.
Scene 6: Estela finds herself with so much free time at home that she completed multiple loads of laundry, reorganized her closet, cleaned every bathroom, reorganized M’s toys, cleaned out the guest bedroom, and read countless books to M. Mr. Weekly Bite is overjoyed with Estela’s newfound productivity.
Scene 7: Estela receives word that her new computer is ready! She drives like speed racer to the Apple store, picks up her new computer with a smile so big its scary, speed races back home, plugs in said computer and types away.
