What is wrong and weird is not always readily apparent, excepting, of course, the Joe "weird-turned-pro" Biden conundrum
Very recently, finally, I discovered why a good bit of my efficiency has been compromised over the last number of months in these crazy days of malaise here in the Age of Covid, and guess what: It was my mouse - the one often attached to my right hand.
It still worked, always had a full battery charge (I keep fresh batteries at the ready), but it worked like an old crooked man - like a Sputtering Biden - which made me think it was first my computer, then BCN's CMS (maybe because of an upgrade glitch to its content management system), then my computer again, then to the worry that everything could just be me, I've lost my tactile touch; however, and thankfully so, it was my mouse. Who knows how many 10's of hours of lost effectiveness I have suffered in the last number of months, maybe a year.
How frustrating, but now how wonderful to know that it was not BCN's CMS, that it was not my computer, and that it was not me, my tactile touch, which has always been good: steady enough to make clear images at low speeds with a DSLR; play guitar well enough when my fingers warm up after days of my trusty instrument resting in its corner or on it stand, work with all many of tools, and paint and draw if I could ever find the time again to do so (for some reason when there is some short time to spare, I gravitate toward my inclination to lovingly grasp my guitar).
Now, after all the 10's of thousands of posts, many very elaborate (this ain't Facebook stuff), that I have personally posted on beaufortcountynow.com , and the 10's of thousands of huge images that I have righted and cropped on graphic programs, I now know a simple mouse can go bad, and it can still appear to function as a normal tool.
You know humans can fool us that way too. So, be careful who you hire, and, moreover, more careful who you elect
to serve us in these tumultuous times.
Next time I go to Sam's Club, I am buying a brand new, moderately priced, spare mouse, and I will keep it close, and ready to press into service if this old mouse that my wife found laying around in her desk appears to falter ever so slightly.
Too bad we can not so easily replace politicians that are pathetic in character, intellectual acuity
, or even poorer with the truth
