PowerPuff Password !
|3rd one in a row! :D|
As soon as I read this prompt, the following conversation between my cousin sister older than me by 14 years and a 10 year old me, came gushing to my memory :
Me ( Excited) : "Yes, the letters on computer. Please di, please even I want to get letters on computer."
Sister: "Yes yes, I am creating your email ID. Remember I said, you need a lock to protect your letters from being read?"
Me (Being a smartass) : " Yes yes, password!"
Sister( Smiling) : " You remember? You are a very smart girl. Now tell me, what password do you want? "
Me (Thinking hard): "My brother's name...errr no..he fights with me all the time..keep it as chocolate..no, I like ice creams better..keep it as mumma's name, papa will get upset..."
Sister: "Wait, wait, your password should not be easy. Somebody will break it and read all your letters easily, otherwise."
Me ( Super excited) : " Hmmm it has to be strong? I know, the perfect password. Powerpuffgirl . Yes, P-o-w-e-r-p-u-f-f-g-i-r-l.."
Me (Firmly): " They are strong and so is my password."
Sister (chuckling): "Ok, I have set your password. Note down your email address. It is, firstname.lastname@example.org ."
Me (Proud and ecstatic) : "Yay! I will ask mummy to help me read my letter. Byeeee!"
The paradox between my first email ID and my first password, struck me, only much later. When I was in High school, I did pick a fight with my sister for playing with my innocence and giving me such a stupid email ID back then. To which she quickly retorted saying, " Your current ID is way worse, email@example.com!"
I had no choice, but to rest my case.
