“No, no, no, no, noooo!!!”
This is the highly upset one-liner that I loudly whispered on Monday when, after spending an hour creating a fantastic post for today, it disappeared.
I know I saved it.
I remember saving it.
Where did it go?
Did my uncoordinated fingers betray me again?
Is WordPress messing with me?
I have no idea where it went and, no, I did not type and save it in a Word document first. I had been doing that, but threw caution to the wind on some crazy I’ll-type-it-directly-into-WordPress whim. Crazy stupid.
Had everything gone as planned, you would have been reading about how others recently asked, “Did you do something different with your hair?” to which the answer is no, not really, but it takes a flat iron, lots of hairspray and a small request to God in order to make the Red Sea part in the back of my head close back up before heading out the door every morning. And even then, the end result of hair preparation is based on which way the wind blows. Because I never know…
(Today’s photo is the one I would have used for the hair post, but it seems equally appropriate for the current mess.)
What you end up with, folks, is a much shorter, still-mad-Mary post about losing a possible masterpiece and time wasted when I could have been aimlessly laying on the couch, watching an aimless TV show.
In summation, the moral of this one-liner is: Remember to always save your writing to a word processing document first and you’ll never have to write a “no, no, no” post…ever.
