Word Contest, #2

WORD CONTEST: Every Monday a new, interesting vocabulary word will be posted here, as well as a sentence using that word.

Your job is to create and post a new, better sentence in the comment box, using the same word. Yes, you may change the form of the word. Yes, I’ll be the judge. Yes, I am a subjective judge  ( I like clever or funny, I hate bigotry).

The winning sentence will be announced here the following Monday.

THIS WEEK’S WORD:    ~ uploaded ~

SENTENCE TO BEAT:  “Honey, I can’t do the dishes, the directions for installing my new hands are still uploading . . . uh, I mean, downloading,” said Mr. Amoeba, his cheek cytoplasm reddening at his techy-lingo faux pas, causing his daughter to roll her nucleus.
