    I was visiting one of my hubs and saw the 'follow wrylilt' link. Just for a laugh I decided to click it. Here is the result.

    You cannot follow yourself
    You're not that desperate for followers, are you?


    lollol

    Nice one, HP!

    Do you know what really happens when you follow yourself?

    Your head goes up your own.....oh wait I can't say that here.

    To follow oneself:

    An act of dedication.

    An act of servitude.

    An act of desperation.

    An act of confusion.

    An act to end all acts.smile

    It's refreshing to know HP has a sense of humor, WryLilt.  I'm impressed that you had the cojones to try this, I never did, fearing my computer would certainly implode!

    when I first signed on to HP I hit that button and got the funny message which certainly helped convince me I was in the right place!  I'll try just about anything once!

    My youngest daughter says that one of the first things she learned was:

    "Don't follow Dad. He has no idea where he is going.  Follow Mom. She knows."
