Turbo Lives On!
Can you believe this? I actually got this error message when I was trying to post a comment to this adorable blog that I found through the Fashion Fiesta. (You may have to click on it to make it big enough to read.)
Did the computer actually ask me to SLOW DOWN?
Now granted, I have visited over 50 blogs on the fashion tour, and I’ve left a comment on almost every one (who needs to get a life?), but still. Since when does the computer tell me to slow down?
The irony is quite humorous. I will tell you a secret. Promise to keep this between you and me, m’kay? In high school, my nickname was Turbo. The reason being, I talk quite rapidly. And the more excited or nervous I get, the faster I talk.
And I type about as fast as I talk. But to get reprimanded by the computer is quite a feat, I would think. Has anyone else ever gotten this message!? I feel like I just got scolded by my mother. Who, ironically, used to tell me to slow down (and still does, for that matter) whenever I get yacking too fast.
Speaking of my turbo tongue, I am afraid that when I meet up with the Disney bloggers, I will embarrass myself by talking too fast. As I said, I talk faster when I’m excited or nervous. And I expect I’ll be a bit of both when, a week from today, I gather with 15 or 20 other fabulous blogging mamas from all over the inter-web. I can’t even imagine it!
So, this is fair warning, those of you who are reading. I talk real fast. You may have to say "what?" or "excuse me?" but please don’t tell me to slow down. And don’t even THINK about calling me Turbo.
