Not again, I think as I type in the letters I think I recognize.

Please prove you’re not a robot. Really and truly, I am not a robot! How considerate of you to preface that with please. Well, you need to learn to write a little clearer. When you smash letters against each other they take on other letter shapes.

The characters you entered didn’t match the word verification. Please try again. Are you kidding me? Oh my, you are speaking to me in red letters now. Don’t get so huffy, I’m trying my best. So I tip my head a little to the right. Maybe that is an m or is it two n‘s together? I squint and think I see a new possibility of letter combinations.

Your comment was published. Finally, I passed the silly test and now they know I am not a robot.

They don’t know  have discovered a few secrets. One thing I’ve learned is that the capitals don’t matter. I can use all lower case letters. For the longest time I was trying to match their letters. No more!  And those numbers in the boxes, that are so dark I can’t even fathom what the number is, forget it. You don’t have to type in any of the numbers. However, it does not work in the reverse, you cannot just type in the numbers.

So, I will continue to prove I am not a robot, but I may have a permanent squinting problem and a twisted neck when this month is over.
