There are some things that my brain just has trouble with. Like choreography. Somewhere in the journey from my eyes to my brain to my feet, there's a broken connection. I just have a hard time figuring it out. It amazes me when natural dancers can watch someone do ten dance steps in a row and easily reproduce them.
That's how I used to feel about those "Word Verification" words you have to type to comment on blogs and to enter information on other websites. It seemed more often than not I got them wrong and had to try again. But finally I guess the a new connection was formed in my brain, and I found myself usually able to type the gibberish on the first try!
Then Blogger went and threw me for a loop. They started requiring Word Verification for composing and editing blog posts, and the letters are more warped than the words that you have to type in the Comment screen. Once again, I find that I can't seem to get it right.
I'm a Word Verification moron.
And I'm not saying that in some sort of self-loathing way. I recognize that accurate Word Verification deciphering is not an essential life skill. I think it's kind of amusing that when confronted with these weird strings of letters, I'm suddenly a dullard.
On my resume: "Skills: Excellent speller. However, if you need meaningless combinations of letters typed, hire my toddler--not me."
So, 'fess up. What seemingly simple tasks seem to cause broken connections in your brain?
Now off to publish this post. Is that "interi" or "interj" I have to type? I guess we'll see....
