Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tion.” Find a word that ends with “tion.” Bonus points if you start your post with it.
Pay attention when you are typing in email addresses. I get them wrong the first time a lot.
If I get the address on my phone I have to type them into my computer on e-mail. I won’t email or gmail on my phone. I hate cell phones: it is only for texting and certain apps like the dictionary.
Anyway; this is about ‘tion’.
I was very lucky more than 50 years ago when we were forced to take typing in junior high. Thank Goodness. We did not know then the great benefit this would bestow on us! Another reason the keyboard, compared to tiny texting, is so much easier.
I got a last minute player for Balderdash and was typing in her email address. Her name ended in ‘ington’: my automatic typing kicked in and I just naturally typed in ‘tion’. When I saw it and tried to fix it; Windows 10 kept telling me I was spelling the name wrong.
I was in a hurry. I don’t want to go into confidential details but she lives a very isolated life due being traumatized by bullies. She was texting “that’s ok. it doesn’t matter” Oh hell, it does matter! OMG! You are joining this game!
(We had a really good game!)
Yesterday morning I went to pick up my shot for osteoporosis at the drug store and went on to the health center. They had told me to sit on the bench outside and someone would come out and get me. I was early so I sat out there for 15 minutes before I saw someone else go in. I got up and realized there was a sign on the door saying to come in. I was 10 minutes late; they changed their policy on how to enter. I didn’t pay attention.
I had to be home by 11:00 for a firewood delivery. He didn’t come until almost noon.
Satisfaction is another word that is
pooping oops, popping into my head. Yesterday I got a lot accomplished.
I’ve been avoiding cleaning out the woodshed due to a hornets nest dead center in the roof inside. A few weeks ago they were flying in and out of the entrance so I couldn’t even go in. I had garbage in there and 2 opened, half used bags of manure. The first bag was on the other side of the hornets so I went and bought another bag, kept it in my wheelbarrow barely under the roof, and very carefully pulled it in and out of the shed.
Something tore up the paper cone so the brood was exposed. (I still can’t figure out what or how that got ripped open) I hated to do it but I blasted what was left with a Dawn/water solution. Then I put some boxes under it to make sure I wouldn’t hit it with my head.
I got all the garbage cleaned up and in the bin ready to take away. Threw all the wood left over from last year into the center, ready to stack today.
I thought he was going to bring another load today but he showed up about 5:00 with another load. Some people work so hard, you are just happy to pay them. I wish I had a handyman as good as this guy!
So: satisfaction! I got a lot accomplished yesterday!
