It’s Me Again (Warning: Grammar Errors Ahead!)

It's Me Again (Warning: Grammar Errors Ahead!)

This post is full of grammar and syntax errors. I know. You know. Now, can we move on?

I’ve been in writing school and I know you’ve missed me. I can tell. I’ll be back soon, I promise. I thought I’d rant for just a minute and give you a taste of my day. My keyboard is fucked. That’s right, when I type it performs these random acts of kindness by adding periods. Doubling letters. Not typing letters. Super helpful for a writer working on a manuscript while trying to get assignments done. I typed this and am going to type the exact same paragraph, without the edits, below. You don’t have to read it twice, just notice what I’m dealing with. Then empathize. Then laugh. Then come back when I have something more interesting to say. Hope you are all staying well and enjoying some vitamin D, the company of people you can still stand, and the occasional walk for fresh air without a mask. Miss you! Kristine

(I’ve highlighted because I needed to put my keyboard on alert. I WILL overuse bold if you don’t stop this madness. You’ve been warned…)

  1. Well, it certainly has a ‘thing’ for vowels! And yes, I have missed you. I just didn’t want to write and make something worse if anything bad had actually happened (Crap, now my keyboard is doing it!).

    Come back soon! And stay well!!!

  2. Funny! Only the first half your sentence appeared in my inbox! The correction didn’t show up so without being able to see your face, I didn’t know if that was deliberately you being cute or the keyboard showing you up!

  3. Well, I’m a bit late, but I think it’s kind of cool that your keyboard has a stutter. At least that’s how I read it. I’m not sure how to read an extra period, though. And maybe it’s a good thing you don’t have an office IT department you can call because they’d just tell you to try turning it off and turning it back on again. Or they’d ask, “Do you really need your keyboard?”

  4. Demon keyboards are the worst, are they not? Good luck with your class as you fight your stuttering keyboard. I’d threaten the SOB. Nothing like “get with the program or I’m tossing you out!” to get an inanimate object to work right again. Mona

  5. I’m back too! Been a bit absent from the blogosphere while transition to full time RV life. Just wondering about the state of foreign objects in your keyboard? I eat a lot while at the keyboard and if I were to turn it over and shake it, I’m sure I could find enough material for a 5 course meal.
