Sunday, March 8


I've been convalescing at home for the last week, and as I'm gearing up for the week ahead, I find I have a ton of writing to do. The standard application for word processing is Microsoft's Word.

As I'm typing, Word makes suggestions and corrects spelling (and yes, I know you can turn this function off). While I was typing, Word suggested replacing "is" with "be" in this sentence:

Thanks, Word, but no thanks.

But what do you expect from a company whose name means small and flaccid?

(Note to those of you out there who are writers: yes, this essay is awful. But this is just a first splash-down, for a prompt I don't like so cut me some slack.)
