you've got a lot to answer for

A few weeks ago I was going through the registration process for yet another online account. I said to my niece "I've got to think of another password, I never ever remember any passwords".
She said "Use bumhole".
Me: "Bumhole?"
Her: "Yeah".
Me: "Bum? Hole?"
Her: "That way, every time you look in the mirror you'll remember it".
Me: "Thanks for that".
Obviously, I used it.

Cut to yesterday, when somebody was helping me out with some technical difficulties I was having with an online project. They said "I'll just need your user name and your password".
Of all the passwords of all the accounts in all of the world.

Needless to say, I won't be using bumhole for any future passwords. But, she was right, I didn't forget it.

These are her feet. The cheeky bumhole.

I laughed out loud at your story. Just the other night, I got so mad trying to sign in to an account, having forgotten the password. It did occur to me for just a second to reset it to another word very like that!

I love your sketch--just the right amount of soft and fuzzy!

Thanks, folks.

I wasn't going to post the drawing or the the story, but thought what the hell! Obvioulsy one of those very late at night decisions.

The drawing was originally a pencil drawing, really flat and boring. It only really came to life when i started scribbling all over it. It's still not great, but I can live with it now.

Stephen, I'm guessing that happened 'to a friend'. Yes? I'd certainlt be interested in seeing that drawing!

Suzanne, I know. I'm such a bumhole.

Cheers, folks.
