841. Pop-Up Puzzle: a mindful bedtime story

Kelly Computer helps Mia and her Aunt Sandra navigate a tricky pop-up.

Pop-Up Puzzle Excerpt:

The afternoon sun peeked through the window in the quiet room. Kelly Computer slept in her spot on the big desk.  She was in the middle of a dream about cookies, when she felt a gentle nudge on her mouse, tickling her awake.  Sandra sat in the rolling chair in front of the desk with her thumb hovering over the left button.

Kelly’s screen flickered to life and her fan let out a happy little hum.  The little computer felt excited, wondering what Sandra might need from her today.
