Morning, Bleaders! Over the past couple weeks I saw posts like “I Just Can’t” on Hacker Ninja Hooker Spy’s page and “Put These in the Suck Column” on Goldfish’s. I decided I’d share a handful of things I can’t do either, however trivial.
#1. Like Aussa (HNHS), I can’t accept money remotely gracefully. There is almost always someone behind me/us in line so instead of putting bills in my wallet and change in its pocket, the wad I’m handed gets thrown in my purse so I can get out of the way. Random note: the other day I noticed my purse felt heavier than usual so I dumped it out and found easily $10 in change.
#2. If Gabe closes a bottle or jar I can’t open them. And I will hurt my hand trying to anyway. Random note: there are two open bottles of Dr. Pepper in our fridge– one I can easily use and one that will stay in there until Gabe remembers to loosen the cap.
#3. In the event of a typo, I can’t just backspace until the blunder’s gone, the whole word needs to be redone. Random note: Despite knowing how to spell souvenir, when I’m typing as fast as I can I have this tendency to add an e between the i and r, and will instinctively backspace because without even looking I know I messed it up.
#4. If my last post was any indication, I can’t draw realistic people. I can’t even trace someone and have it look realistic. Random note: the next thing I intend to draw is a fairy– I promised a LEP a fantasy ATC, and I promise you I’m not even going to try making said fairy look like she’s real.
#5. From the moment I know the flag’s down, I can’t get out to the mailbox soon enough; it doesn’t matter if I already have three letters to respond to, if the mail came within 5 minutes I’m going to know what’s in it. Random note: last week’s mail included 6 letters and three postcards via postcrossing.
#6. And I’m sure there’s no surprise here, but I can’t see a site or blog revolving around pen palling without either bookmarking, sharing, or adapting it. I most recently shared this link with my pen pals– Cassie, the creator of the Snail Mail Project, is hoping to hook its members up with a list of 10 pen pals with similar lists. Random note: I love the idea, but I’m at capacity. No new pen pals shall be hired at this time.
Yeah, pretty trivial, eh? Well, I shall leave you with a cute new picture of me and the boys from yesterday– Logan “can’t” stop talking about all the pirates he saw at the Mid MI Ren Fest, hehe.
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
