Words Fail

And apparently, so does the auto-correct function on an iPhone when typing while cranky.

About a week and a half ago, I was feeling cranky. I was still getting kids stuff ready for school, and having Little One insist that all of her supplies, folders, zippered binder and even backpack be red. And the reds can’t clash. And no designs. And she doesn’t like velcro.

She doesn’t have a backpack as yet. And with that attitude, won’t have one in the foreseeable future.

Anyway, I was home, awaiting my daily call with Hubby, when I receive a text message letting me know he’s had a bad day. In his work and duty station, I believe it. But it doesn’t help my mood any when he is sending messages about his day, and not asking about mine. I try to be considerate, but being cranky doesn’t help, and I “yell” in my message to him:


His next message relays the same words, and immediately I am contrite. I tell him I missed him saying it. And this is the result:

Had to clean up. This *is* a family friendly blog.

Needless to say, he found it funny. But from now on, I double check spelling before hitting the “send” button 🙂
