I'm trying to write a parent evaluation form for DS to be evaluated for learning disorders.

This word is on the tip of my tongue and I just can't find it.

I'm trying to say he's well spoken, has a good vocabulary. What is that dang word?

It's not literate....but like that only with regards to speech...

So aggravating when I have a mental moment! Maybe I'm the one who needs the evaluation.

Nothing wrong with describing it as "well spoken with a good vocabulary"....

I can NEVER think of words that are hilariously ironic.

(I remember interviewing, and tripping up in the sentence where I was supposed to say I was good at communicating via phone for conference calls. TOTALLY garbled it! )

I was so focused on filling out this 16 page evaluation I totally missed the irony.

Well, the kids obviously more articulate than his mom.

I once called for take out and asked for a burger thing on bread.

The person on the other end said "a hamburger"?

Yes!! That's what I want.

Glad to have such good company.

I swear that I had a brain at one time. And it remembered stuff too.

I picture all the information I have stored in my brain this way... It is swirling around slowly through my skull. There is a pointer that hits the pieces of information that I need and brings them into my memory. Sometimes it takes awhile for the right piece of information to get in range of the pointer.

I picture all the information in my brain stored on those old library dewy decimal system small file drawers with rows of cards. I have to flit down a lot of cards to get to the one thing I was trying to remember...

My group of GF's laugh about this all the time.

We were at a craft retreat and she said "Can I borrow your liquid tape?"

Ummm....do you mean glue?

She did - and we all just laughed and laughed.

To this day we all refer to glue as 'liquid tape'.

You are in good company!

I have a word I can't remember also. Is it ok to hijack your thread?

In screen design, text fields can be pre-populated with grey help text. There is a one word noun for this text but damned if I can remember it.

I've asked our UX folks and the BAs but they have no idea.

It's not a noun, but "Prompting" text?

Thanks NIK, but not placeholder text.

Only one word something like indefinite but that's not it. It was used in a style guide for screen standards I used at a job many, many moons ago.
