I was not the smartest kid in school, but I could hold my own pretty well. As an adult I’ve been able to make it to 36.5 without dying a Darwin Award-worthy death.
But I swear to you that I’m stupider than I used to be.
As I read back through this blog I see that I am mixing up the their/there/they’res and the its/it’s thingies. I keep wanting to type “half to” instead of “have to” and only very occasionally do I get lay/lie correct.
But now, today, just this afternoon, I fell asleep during an educational program. I have the “Thanksgiving wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be” special from the History Channel on TiVo, and have saved it for a day when I had some handwork to do in front of the television. I normally love these historical things, where the kindly Lord Vampire/Grandpa Gillmore walks us through the high points of history with his gentle voice and some SCA team gets to fulfill their long-standing wishes of portraying people in corsets in front of a national audience. It’s interesting.
But today, not so much. My first thought was “this is like a movie we’d have to watch in High School.” My second thought was ZZZZZZZZZ.
It makes me want to do a crossword puzzle or something to prove myself.
