Lesson Number One
Make sure your post title is the longest one you have ever written. It'll look impressive to anyone who can read knowing you accomplished this feat with only one index finger. (You will also get extra points if a teacher reads it and pronounces that you have spelled all the words correctly... and even more points if the entire post is grammatically correct including punctuation. Particularly if it is Mrs. Who, whom we all know is the absolutely best but severely underpaid and under-appreciated teacher in her state... AND she survives even though she works for Professor Umbridge! NOTE: I WAS going to link to one of Mrs. Who's Professor Umbridge posts but her current post is.... well, I won't ruin the surprise...)
Lesson Number Two
Wait to post anything to the internet until you only have to take Advil for the pain. (Unless you actually want anyone to know exactly what you did to earn that purple cast... Note the date since my last post...)
Lesson Number Three
Make sure your post contains a short humorous anecdote from before PC (purple cast)
How about this for short and anecdotal... I've asked my husband several times to take the air conditioner out of the window.
(You'd think he would have vividly remembered our previous experience with air conditioners. I recently had to describe this past experience during a conversation and even though it's been years, I still become mortified. Mortified because I can't coherently get the whole story out before becoming unintelligible from laughter, both from the experience and the expressions on the listeners faces. I can't help myself, it just cracks me up. I'm sorry, but I always seem to picture myself standing with the squirrels and wild turkeys and wishing I had had a camera. A picture of the expression that must have been on my husband's face when he received the phone call would also have been an extra special 'Kodak moment'.)
