These are all terrific! They all make perfectly good sense to me. Here's mine.
Mine pretty much came from my DD's friends at dance and the school where I was teaching.[DD also attended ]. Instead of them calling me, "Mrs. Bradshaw"...it turned into msbrad or MammaB. My initials were MB, and when I had to authorize/initial...it was mb or m.
Now the story behind the bluebird always on my avatar and siggie...
The school system sent myself and another teacher to a technology training [over 20 years ago]. I had zero clue. The instructor had no patience for us. Even went so far as to ask the group [all of which were educators], who would take on the "dodo birds" into their group for the project we were to create. It was very embarassing.
I vowed to learn...the computer. I decided I moved "up" to bluebird status, LOL.
Fast forward, to today, [actually about a year ago], I was at another technology training [the schools recieved pse 9 for the high stakes lab with Bill Gates monies]... that SAME instructor was there...
He was having an issue with the program. He was very, frustrated and asked his assistant [some IT in the county] to contact Adobe etc.
I spoke up [outloud] and interrupted. [that is not my norm, I'm usually quiet at those things]-
Try turning off caps lock and see if that helps...
If nothing else, I get most improved.
Wow Michelle, that's an awesome story! And about the instructor? What comes around goes around ;)
these are all so great!
and Michelle, oh my gosh, if I was in your shoes at that training, I would not have been able to keep the gloating smirk off of my face!!!! well earned Bluebird status!!!!
