You go to log into one of the million websites in which you need a password, and upon demand, you must contrive a password the is long as the Great Wall of China, as complex as Pan’s Labyrinth, as complicated as calculus, as unique as an individual’s voice. I had a entire notebook devoted to password records, but alas I misplaced it. I would make a spreadsheet, but that is password protected.
A lesson in why password questions are unfair:
Parents wedding anniversary- doesn’t count
First job you were a manager- doesn’t count
A day that has special meaning- doesn’t count
City your father was born- doesn’t count
Best childhood friend- I have two
Favorite radio station- who listens to the radio?
Nickname of my Grandmother- you have got to be kidding
Favorite cuisine- all of them?
A relative’s telephone number- seriously? that is a stretch.
Day your first child was born- …
Name of your first niece- Finally! One down, two more to go until I unlock the hidden secrets of something entirely mundane. Good to know that hacking into my interweb life that is full of meaningless details is harder than breaking into my house.
