An Odd Combination

So here's the scoop...Three Word Wednesday gave some pretty unusual words their prompt today.  They are conniption,janky and scooch. Now, I have to say, it was a 'sticky' challenge, but one that I did not have a conniption over, if you know what I mean.


A Rime Royal for the Non-Digerati

Just because the computer’s acting all janky
doesn’t give you an excuse for this conniption.
I get it why this might make you a bit cranky,
but I bet something simple’s your main ascription.
Reading the manual is the best prescription
I can think of, so scooch over and let me see:
What??? How’d peanut butter get stuck on your ‘alt’ key?

  23. RJ, you crack me up. Since I was often the unofficial "guru" in office settings, the peanut butter in the ALT key made me laugh out loud. It's right there beside "Is it plugged in?" as the person is pounding their keyboard in frustration that nothing is on their screen.

    Great use of prompt words!! Amy

    PS My visual verification word is HYPER!!
