It’s All Geek To Me

12 Jan

A message for my regular readers: Sorry to give you a new post when I promised you a week of old posts.  I wrote and scheduled this post last Saturday, before my back problem kicked in.

I’m a bit of a nerd.

I realised it last week, when I read your Six Word Saturdays.  I caught myself counting them, checking that everyone had used only six words.  

It occurred to me that I do it every time.

I’m not sure what would happen if somebody dared to use five or seven words instead of six.  

I’d probably have to expel them from the collective.

    I remember someone once telling me I was a word short. Was it you?

    So contractions count as one word do they? 😉

    I also check for six words! See? 😉
    Does that mean we are anal?

    You are not alone. 🙂 I always check them too!

    Can you say obsessive compulsive disorder? Six words, and I’m the same. 🙂

    You keep me on my toes! I will be sure I only use six words. Usually I make sure I count them on my fingers–twice. Now I’ll count three times. Now go rest back,

    I wouldn’t say that you were a nerd. I would say that you were a stickler for the rules, that isn’t nerdy, it is following the rules as they are to be followed. I am simply happy to read whatever you write so I never count. I just sit back and absorb happily. 🙂

    Last week LOTS of people used more than six words and I wondered why you did not say anything..

    You must be a nice person.

    Linda, 5 or 6 words … I can say it in 3 – I like you!

    I do the same! Like counting syllables – it’s automatic. It must be the poet in you, checking the pentameter.

    I nominated you for some awards:
    I look forward to your reply!

    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    I do to! Looking forward to meeting you in Carlisle in March. Great second hand book shop to visit and, for me and Mum, a wool and craft shop but don’t let me spend too much money in either.

    Oh no – I’ve made a spelling mistake.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
