There was a bit of a domestic problem yesterday and we had to outsource home delivered lunch. I was alone at home and was entrusted with the task.
It has been a very long time since I ordered for any food to be delivered at home and the place that I wanted to order from, apparently had closed down a long time ago. The telephone number that I had with me was useless as it had been discontinued.
I therefore had to use an app on my phone to get it but was unable to. Luckily for me, one of my resident geeks, my son, landed up and was able to order and I did not have to starve.
I however had to be at the receiving end of some gentle ribbing for being so clueless and undergo a tutorial about how to order online using an app on my phone. Phew!
Just as the Father’s Day was winding down, I received a cartoon from a friend which cheered me up quite a bit and which I promptly shared with my daughter in love and son who too cracked up.
Apart from pre-installed spellcheck in my blog programme, I have another human keeping a careful watch over my blog posts. She has an MA in English Literature and was also a popular lecturer in two famous colleges for ladies in Mumbai.
The latest policing that she did was when she saw my post “There Is A Rough Sense Of Justice In The World” she caught a typo. Instead of Sense, I had typed Sence and quite how the spellcheck missed that I do not know.
She sent a message to me before anyone else could read that and I was able to correct and update my post.
Thank you dear Grammar Police Woman.
(Psst, she is none other than my one and only sister Padmini who has stopped blogging for some inexplicable reason.)
