Saturday Centus: Absent-E Absent Me
Jenny Matlock's prompt for today's Saturday Centus brought a smile to my face. It reminded me of
torture fun I might have afflicted on students when I taught a class for the gifted and talented. Every day the students entered class I had some sort of puzzle to help them get their brains in gear! This prompt would be perfect! It is such a fun way for me to begin my day! Jenny challenged us to write a cogent sentence without using the letter "e". Being the type of person I am, my first response was:
This assignmnt is a psc of cak!
Because, dear friend, Jenny said the sentence had to be cohesive... she didn't say that we had to spell the words correctly ;-) Actually I discovered that with all of the efforts our computers make to make certain we do spell words correctly, writing that sentence was a bit of a challenge!
Anyway, here I sit at a campground in Albany, Oregon. We have been on the road for over two weeks - hard to believe! I am limping along on the campground's wireless connection. I remind myself that I am thankful that they have Internet. I think back to the days of ethernet cables and dial up connections. Yes, this is better than it could be. And, the internet is free. So... I shouldn't really get upset that their connection is slower than a turtle... in winter! The stunning speed of the Internet and my feelings about it made this challenge as easy as pie (try writing that without an e!):
Frankly, I don't want to complain, but this is a pain!
