The Things We Take For Granted ...

There are days when you have absolutely no idea what to post, which is really not a problem. But then, when you have a couple of assignments waiting for you to complete before a certain deadline, that's when it becomes a huge problem. I could always talk about Apricot trees but hey, I don't think you'd really be interested now would you ... LOL!

So with that in mind and the need to find some topic to post that would not bore the pants or skirts out of you guys, I decided to post something I read on Chegu Carol's blog a long time ago. You don't mind ya Carol, I ciplak (copy) your post topic. When I become rich one day from doing all these assignments you can always sue the pants out of me ... LOL!

Do you guys ever realize how much for granted you take the keys on your keyboard? You always xpet expect it to be working. one One fine day if a certain key breaks down or acts op up, what would you do? Say for instance, the backspace key went and died on you. How would that affect youer your ability to tyoe type?

Well, I for one wouyld woy would be hipele hopelessly screwed beyond help cos with my typein tyin typing skills and the amount of misatakes mistake I tend to make while typing, you'd probably end up not inder understanding a single word I say ... LOL! I ea mean, you already cn can tell rigt right. Look at the amount of typos I amde made already (which I highlighted in gren green) without hitting the backspace key to correct any of them.

Atrociious Atrocious isn't it? Imagine how all my posts would be like. They would just be a buncgh bunch og of gibberish. My typo typing is totally horrendous and sometime I even have to get wiofey wf ei wifey to proof read it firts first before posting ... hahaha! I'll bet you guys take your backspace for granted just as much as i I do :D Go ahead, trying typing a whole post WITHOUT hitting the backspace key and see how well you fare.

well Well, at least for one once I wouldn't have to worry tt toomuc too much about having to proof read my posts before hitting the publish pis post button :D

Oh and if you realu really wanna know aboyt about apricot trees let me know and I'll try to think up of something ... LOL!

  6. I guess English is not Carol's first language, the thing I find horrifying (as an English teacher) are the number of blogs like that from native speakers... now that truly is a worry. Unfortunately also a sign of the times.

    Thanks for visiting my new blog and the great comment.

  11. Emelda - LOL! I hope I didn't make you to pening with my horrible typing. Now we all know how important our backspace key is, all thanks to Carol :D

  12. Argentum Vulgaris - Actually, Carol's English is excellent and she was basically highlighting about what would happen if we didn't have backspace keys on our keyboards in one of her previous posts.

    It has nothing to do with the way she writes in her blog.I think you may have misunderstood my entire post.

  20. Yay! You know what I usually do when my keyboard doesn't work - I hit it hard. I get this error when I type fast and in a hurry to publish just before the clock ticks 12midnite, lol! Otherwise I have control on where to place my fingers on the keyboard. :-)
