I want to undo.

I AM CHORTLING! CAVORTING! KICKING up my heels in jubilation!

It is simply astounding, Reader Dear, what transformations can occur when one has a completely uninterrupted hour with one's own personal geek! One may ask oneself, "Why ever did I drag my feet, procrastinate. and delay in going for this consultation?"

"What is it that you want to do?" he asked, this charming and handsome white knight. He seemed so confident and agreeable.

So I poured out my litany. "Ever since I got this new laptop, things haven't been the same. I've been gritting my teeth and groaning, grumbling and grousing because I can't do what I used to do!" When he smiled, I added, "The first thing I want to do is 'undo.'

"What do you want to undo?" he asked.

"I just want to undo....well...the last thing I did," I replied. "In the past, if I accidentally deleted something, I'd just click 'undo' and there was a resurrection!" (Er. Dear Reader, I may not have said resurrection. I might have said something like..." it all came back").

"I'll show you," I said. I opened up a blog window and typed: I want to undo*

*You see, Dear Reader, it's still there (at the start of this post)! Because then I didn't know what to do; I didn't want to undo I want to undo, because I wanted I want to undo. I would only want to undo I want to undo if it were accidentally undone. Then I would want to undo the undone I want to undo, which would bring back I want to undo. (He said it didn't really matter if I didn't want to undo I want to undo. And it was true. Without undoing I want to undo, he helped me ' undo' [and with other issues, too] For which I gave him a big thank-you [with no 'undo'].)

Uh-oh, what's the matter? Have you come undone, Reader Dear?!
