Am I Tech-challenged?
The answer is “Quite possibly, yes.”
Well, maybe not all the time, and not in all-things techy, but in some things for sure.
It seems some of you may have gotten a “sample” of my future post today – in advance.
You’re welcome – I’m a giver, like that. Kind of like a getting a trailer at a movie theater about an upcoming movie.
Except that … I didn’t do it on purpose.
Maybe the movie studios should hire this tech-challenged dude. I can promote their movies without even trying. Am I also a savant who predicts the future??
So here’s how Mr. Tech-Challenged pulled this off:
I started my future post with the title, “Not So Favorite Body Part.” (Curious aren’t you??). Which, may or may not have ended up being the title. As I was typing the second paragraph of this little gem of a post, I apparently – according to WPMU.org – hit Ctrl+Alt+p.
Of course, that combination PUBLISHES the dad-gum post. How I did all three of those things at once, I have no earthly idea. I usually can’t do that when I’m trying.
And all that my friends can only mean:
“Oh, yes we got lots and lots a’ trouble.
Right here in River City.”
I thought I made the error “worse-than-death” when it appeared that the screen started to save and it gave me a publication date, but the post wouldn’t pull up when I clicked on it. Maybe there was hope.
*said with question mark at the end*
As my eyes twitched and my muscles started to spasm, my mouth started foaming, and tech-challenged-guy quickly went to the STATUS area on the Dashboard and changed it to “Draft.”
PROBLEM SOLVED, RIGHT?
I thought so, before MLB and I left the house to drive down to San Diego. Having not discussed “the meltdown incident” – as it will forever be known in the annals (no, Jules and Darla, not anals!) of MJ Monaghan lore – MLB was checking her email, on her phone, and uttered those now-fateful words …
“Oh, you have a new post out!”
Before I could speak, she said, “But it ends in mid-sentence.”
Yep, I’m that good!!
Are you as tech-challenged as I am?
