Something Funny I Did

Mar 17, 2016 3:38 PM

Today I was reading a real book not using my iPad to read kindle. I haven't read a real book in over a year. It has been so long. They are practically going extinct. But I know there are die hard Bibliophiles out there. But you know when you are reading on your tablet and you want the page to turn, you usually touch right edge of the screen. Well, I guess I was tired or just really stupid. But I kept pressing on my right edge of my paper for two or three times for the page to turn. It was two in the morning and I burst out laughing to the point of tears. My wife wakes up with worry asking me what is wrong. Then she gets mad at me when I tell her because she was really in a good sleep. But I thought I would share my stupidity. It might make someone laugh.

Just in case I wasn't making myself clear, I was pressing on it like a tablet.

Lol. I know when I read a paper or hard bound book I get kinda cranky because I have to hold in my hands. With the iPad it is resting on my knee or on the chair arm.

I've tried to get a definition by holding my finger on a word. I use a nook, usually. If I do this on a real book, once I realize it, I usually look around really quick to make sure no one saw lol.

I have not read a Book for over 15 years. But the funny thing i did was still silly. Yesterdays mail included an envelope from the county tax collector. I opened it up and glanced at the note which clearly highlighted the due date of 1April2016. I was mad for once i beat the crowd and mailed my check 3 weeks early! And they rejected early payment! Unbelievable right? I was ready to drive over and pay them in pennies, for being idiots.
Then i looked carefully at the check and note again.... i did not match the amount in the box ($136.00) to the line, i had written `one hundred 00/100`.
Tomorrow will mail the correct amount, or send my husband to pay it.

Profiler, you are too funny!! I love your willingness to share funny things that you have done!! I would have been laughing right along with you!!! I have done that with other things. I hope that you continued to read. (Actual Books). I just went back to regular books myself. The problem is I feel they are heavy and cause my hands, wrists, arms and shoulders to hurt badly. Hope all is well with you and that your wife did not stay angry for long.. {{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻

Thanks for sharing I laughed with you. I do goofy crap too and then crack up. Way back in the day about 20 years ago I got caught trying to answer the home phone with the TV remote! My daughter saw it and still talks about it. Her time will come, it always does. :)
