NaBloPoMo Day 16 – From the Phone

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22565 – 878

Here’s the haps:

I’m sitting at the table writing to you on my phone because the computer is in use by College Daughter who is writing a paper on communication. It’s a big part of her grade and has a couple of special personal challenges for her. Despite her diagnosis of Progressive Primary MS she is bound and determined to finish this degree. She only has the two classes this semester but that is plenty.

She has fought with Dyslexia all of her life as well and when she has been working really hard and gets tired it affects her more. But I am the proofreader guy and between two daughters and a friend who is taking classes also I have read and corrected a lot of college papers. When my wife was taking classes I helped her. What with all this here booklarnin’ I should have a degree. Except for math. I failed math so much I can’t count.

Anyway, I am not crazy about using the app on the phone to try to write and there are other distractions as well.

More to come…


  1. You and I have a special bond that you have just revealed – we’re math morons. I like to think people who are “challenged” by math are intellectually gifted. The fact that you too have “the issue” is further proof that my theory is correct.

I like comments and try to respond to them all if I can:
