Why You Should Always Run that Internal Spell & Grammar Check or... THINK before you speak.

So the other day, I was taking some computer test and the older woman administering said test was chatting amiably, explaining the layout of their cramped little computer set up. I stared at key keyboard for a moment, which dated from about 20 years before the Age of Ergonomica (yes I made that up) and said something about familiarizing myself with the board.

"Oh yes," she says cheerfully, "I have to do that to. But then, I've always been a hunt'n peck-er."

Think about that for a moment.

And we looked at each other. And she turned absolutely scarlet. Now, for a double entendre, it really was rather tame, but she looked completely mortified. I suspect the strongest word out of this woman's mouth might be "poop".

So I said "Well, guess I'll get started on this test!" And turned to the monitor as she slowly slunk away.

My husband is always telling me to think before I speak. We tried to explain that to the 7 year old last night.

HAPPY ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY! :) Thanks for blog hopping over to my place :)

I think that people should not only run the internal one, but the external one as well, LOL!

Have a super day :)

Awesome. I love it! I always laugh when someone says its their duty so I'm really low on the maturity scale.

I have the sense of humor of a teenage boy. So there is no way I could have left that alone.
