I’m Typing This Post With My Thumb

I’m typing this post with my thumb.

It rained here yesterday and my over-seventy-year-old house’s electrical system is ill-equipped to handle modern day conveniences like the Internet….or electricity. Usually I can MacGyver my way back online but this time I can’t get all the lights to flash on the modem of the one computer I’ve been able to get up to speed since the last storm, which I think means I have to call the cable company. I’d rather go to the dentist.

So I’m typing this post on my phone with my thumb.

I’m watching carefully to make sure the auto predict text function on my phone doesn’t hijack my post like it does my text conversations. Once I was texting a friend that my kids had been overtired that week so I was enforcing “early bed times,” but my phone was convinced I meant “early beatings.” Fortunately my friend did not call Child Protective Services.

So, I’m calling the cable company today. I don’t know what I’ll do while I’m on hold since I won’t have Pinterest to entertain me (this is where I would hyperlink the post I wrote about how I play with Pinterest while I am on hold. If I weren’t typing this post with my thumb.) I guess I’ll catch up on my Words with Friends and Hanging with Friends games.

I also need to pack. The kids and I are taking a two-part road trip over the next few weeks. Phase 1 begins tomorrow.

But before I call the cable company I’m taking the kids to an introductory fencing lesson at the library. Because before you cram three kids in a minivan to drive for miles and miles you should teach them how to cause each other bodily harm. Makes the conflict over who gets to watch the Despicable Me DVD first much more entertaining. On second thought, I’m making a mental note to check the vehicle for all long, pointy objects before we depart.

So that’s what’s happening here. For the Question of the Day, I’ll give you a choice. Or answer both! First, any fun games besides Words, Hanging, and Angry Birds I should play while I’m on hold with the cable company? Second, any funny predictive text story you want to share?

Please Forgive any mistakes in this post. I have fat thumbs.
