Yesterday I spent two hours copying a long list of jokes intending to post them. I had copied and pasted them from an e-mail. The original printing was so large that I was unable to post it, so I tried changing the font size. That usually works, but not this time. So I pasted it in Notepad. Still no luck.
The only alternative that I could find was to type the whole thing in my blog manually. I set the correct font and size and went to work. I had to change colors due to the changing jokes. Spacing became a problem, but, not to be deterred, I figured that out. I was determined that you were not going to miss these hilarious jokes.
At long last, and after much editing, I was ready to post it. As I scanned it one last time to make sure I hadn't missed a typo I noticed one of those little red circles with the x that you use to delete a box. I assumed that it was from the original copy that I had been using as a template and I didn't want that showing on my post.
Yep - you probably guessed it! I clicked on it and watched my entire post disappear. Gone, kaput, vanished off into cyberspace.
Did I scream, swear, throw things, stamp my feet or throw a tantrum you ask? Ten years ago I probably would have answered 'yes' to all of the above. You will be proud of me when I tell you that I didn't do any of those things. Well, save your pride. I didn't do them because I no longer have the energy it takes.
Instead of the giggle I wanted to give you, I am giving you a meme. So sorry!
And, no, I am not typing it over.
And, yes, you can laugh now.
