It's my happy place.

Clear cookies. Computer suggested and it seemed like a good idea. Computer will run faster with my download folder and temporary files and cookies removed. Click the box to clear cookies. Delete browsing data.

Then I go to a site I visit often, several times a day. The welcome screen looks different and the username box is empty.

Eyeroll capable of being seen from space.

Why did I do that? The clear cookies box sat unchecked, looking harmless and empty, for months. I should have left it that way but nooooooooo. Check, click, followed quickly by face palm.

How could I forget which username I need for a site I use frequently? Well, that’s easy. A gazillion sites and varying passwords for each = I can’t remember. Plus, for the longest time, I left the clear cookies button unchecked… no need to tax the brain remembering log in information, except when I have to because I’m an idiot. I have a book in which many usernames/passwords are written down, but not all. Not yet. (Quick check: do I remember my own phone number? … … … yep. Oh, good.)

Oh, my life and brain! How you both like to make sure I’m never bored.

Note to self: clear cookies is only good advice when the chocolate chips enrobed in sugary goodness sit on a plate, waiting, calling your name.

  1. Did the cookies enrobed in sugar goodness at least helped with the brain function of remembering the password?

      No, not really, but they tasted good and distracted me from my moronitude. 🙂

    I’ve done this, complete with an expletive-laced exclamation upon realizing what I did. Computering is tough, eat more cookies.

      True. Yes, more cookies. Always a good way to go.
