Writing a post on a forum for British Expats and suddenly being overcome by social anxiety and deleting the draft post. Then, later, rewriting the post because it was originally a good idea, followed by more anxiety, staring at the screen frozen for ten minutes then more deleting, rewriting and editing.

Then deleting the whole lot, replacing it with a suitable smiley-face and getting another member of the household to click "Submit Reply" while blushing and feeling both intimidated and excited at the same time.

Are you now in a position to confirm whether or not marshmallows are made of shaving cream mixed with plastic?

So while trying to type "Homemade marshmallow recipe" into google, you accidentally typed "bukkake" instead

I sometimes have similar problems with my keyboard too.

This should help us with a common problem on this site though.
