I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm really enjoying the new word verification system Blogger has foisted upon us. (No. Seriously. That isn't sarcasm.) I mean, sure, at first it irritated the crap out of me. But since I can't beat it, I might as well join it.
So, I made a game out of it. Now when I hit a blog with a difficult word verification, I challenge myself. "Okay, Meissner," I says to myself, "see if you can figure this one out on the first try." If I do? Winner winner diet-friendly fish & veggies dinner.
Life throws all sorts of irritating, difficult, annoying, time-consuming crap at us. We can either let it bother us, we can go with the flow, or we can make a game out of it.
Have you ever made a game out of something that annoys you?
Thing 1: The title of this post is the word verification I caught when I commented this morning over at Paperback Writer. Is it just me or does that sound like the name of some exotic CPA? "If you're in East Timor and need your taxes done quick, call the offices of Burnet Onicapeo."
Thing 2: When I talk to myself, I still use my maiden name. The Husband is Sanderson when he talks to himself, so if I was Sanderson, too, it would get confusing. Besides, I've been calling myself Meissner for decades. Why stop now?
