Sometimes You Just Know

I went through a phase where I was convinced I was somewhat psychic, always knowing whether my best friend and I would get caught doing something our parents would kill us for doing. Still, we did whatever we weren't supposed to do anyway because sometimes my psychic abilities failed, and sometimes it was just worth the risk. It's amazing to me that we both lived through 2nd to 12th grade. There were some really close calls, parental and other. Some day I owe you a few stories of where we went and what we did when we snuck out, usually in the middle of the night but sometimes just mid-day when we were never where we said we were.

Anyway, sometimes I guess I sill am psychic. See, I was about to leave a comment on a blog the other day, and it was one that makes you first type in what the captcha thingy says. I get it that y'all like to be vigilant against the spam and whatnot, I do, but some of those are really hard, you know? Sometimes they are just hard enough that you just know that you will get it wrong.

This is what I was given:

Yah, I was right. I totally got it wrong. At least I didn't wind up grounded for the entire month or anything, though.

What do you think is the correct first letter? Also, do you have any psychic abilities? If so, I have a few questions for you.


  1. ier today that was "fable". I love it...shoulda took a screen shot but alas...:(

  2. Oh, I am so with you on this one Maggie! I often wonder if it's my age creeping up on me. I will stare, and stare, and STARE at those words sometimes - asking myself - is that an 'h' or a 'b' or is that an 'i' or a 'j', is that an 'm' or an 'n' AND an 'r' smashed up against it? I ALWAYS get it wrong. Then sometimes, the darn thing doesn't even LOAD! I have a rectangle with that red X in it! So I'll hit publish, then wait for a different one to load. Of course, then it erases your password, and I always forget THAT, so then I'll have to guess at yet another cryptic word and remember to re-enter my password!

    I don't even know if I have that crytpic thingy on my blog or not. I know I removed comment moderation ages ago, but that thing may still be there.

    But like you, I get it too, in regards to avoiding spam comments. Once I removed comment moderation, I can no longer delete comments, so they are stuck there forever, and I'd hate to have my comments cluttered with spam.

  3. h - it 'tis an h!

    I feel like I can read people very well. I'm an observer - so I watch and am keen on most people!

  4. at first glance it looks like a b...then my psychic abilities enable me to see the h it truly is. And I got a password yesterday that made me giggle: spermu LMAO!

  5. I'm not psychic, but sometimes I feel a "disturbance in the force" that indicates something is going to go horribly wrong. Of course that might just be me being drunk...

  6. Not psychic - not in the active sense, anyway. I'm more of a passive psychic - I need a stimulus, like Tarot Cards, to turn it on. That said, that is an 'h'.

  7. I will vary from the obvious and guess a B. Let me know if you meet any good psychics, I got some questions of my own.

  8. mmm, i think that's an h... my psychic goes up and down, so i wouldn't bank on anything, heee heee heee

  9. Captcha makes my head hurt.
    It always takes me 2-3 times to get it right. Crazy I'm able to make out doctor's handwriting. But Captcha? Not so much.

    I'm usually a good judge of a person's personality. That's about all.
