Mongo Studies Quantum Physics and Particle/Wave Duality

I'm freaking out. I'm completely fixated upon and obsessed with a mistake of macro-magnitude. Consequently, this post will be short. You're welcome.

I'm an idiot savant, minus the savant, when it comes to computers. In seconds I can screw things up that are fail-proof. My computer IQ is a single digit with a decimal point to the left. Do you remember the movie Blazing Saddles? Alex Karras played Mongo, a cowboy with a single digit IQ, and a decimal point to the left. When it comes to technological savvy or competency, I'm Mongo. "Me Mongo, me fix."

Yesterday, me go into my contacts. Me move members of one group to new group. Me no need first group anymore so me delete that group and me somehow also delete over half of my entire contact list. Poof! It gone! Me very, very upset! Me clutch chest. Me grab paper bag and breathe into it all night. Me look everwhere; me no find. Me call friend who knows computers; she no find. Me now in fetal position and still breathing into paper bag.

Me have spent all day going back through old emails and one-by-one typing into my contact list all I can find. Me not live long enough to find them all. Me so upset me could end up on the 10 o'clock news tonight. Stay tuned.

Me Mongo, me in a fix. Mongo have to go now and try not to ruin anything else.

You are such a good writer. You express yourself so well. I wish I could do that.

Thanks for the compliment. I'm not a John Updike or an Ernest Hemingway, but a pretty decent Steve Harris.
After my contact list disaster I am needing some reassurance I'm able to do SOMETHING right.
I encourage you to wade into the writing pool yourself. Maybe start out, if you don't alrady, by journaling your observations--your feelings about--your experiences each day.
Thanks again.
