4 minutes til (virtual) class “Dang”, I think. I need to post today's poem! I paste the poem, the title, the tags. I have the sense that once the page says “saving draft” I’m *******. So I quickly press save.. and.. 502 bad gateway “Argh,” I say under my breath, glancing at my clock. I press refresh. Do you want to submit the form? Of **** course I want to resubmit - I press submit.. and.. 502 bad gateway “Oh my f-king GOD!” I yell at my iPad I press refresh. Do you want to resubmit? Yes, yes, YES- I resubmit, I submit, I supplicate, I grovel.. and.. 502 bad gateway 2 minutes I scream a line of obscenity that would **** the Pope if he were here. I refresh One of my roommates inquired, “Are you ok?” from her room. I resubmit and.. and.. and.. “Yes!” I yell, to reassure my roommate, “Website issues,” it finally, finally posts. A “Whoom” sound announces the start of my virtual class.
