Send Dan K. note

Yesterday I dutifully wrote down 17 things that I needed to do at work, and just as dutifully crossed them off as I finished them.

I feel pretty good when I "accomplish" a lot, so sometimes I'll write stuff like "Reply to Brenda". This involves opening Brenda's e-mail, hitting reply, and then typing two or three words. Oh and then hitting send.

All in a day's work.

But, my real reason for writing this post today is that item number 10 on my list yesterday was "Send Dan K. note".

At the end of the day I stared and stared at my notation. "Huh?" Who in the heck is Dan K.? And why do I need to send him a note?

I pondered it all the way home and even mentioned it to Susanne hoping she'd say something like "isn't he that guy you've mentioned from blah, blah, blah project?"

But nope. She had no idea. So this morning, I returned to my desk with a full cup of coffee and began to stare in earnest at the entry. Nothing...and then...EUREKA!

It actually said "Write Dave K. a note." Psych! I'd already followed up on something with Dave K. yesterday morning, so I was able to solve the mystery and cross another thing off the list.

I totally blame the Palmer Penmanship Method for this confusion. And, I never made my Q's like that!!!! -Monica

P.S. Thank goodness the weekend is almost here!!!

I think I was in my late twenties before I learned how to make a cursive capital Q. I always made a printed Q and then went on with cursive for the rest of the word.

I still DO write a printed Q and then go back to cursive. Good thing that not too many words start with a capital Q! -Monica
