Suffering from premature exclamation

Twice today I've posted pieces here and then had far better titles come to mind.

I wish to hell I'd thought of "Oedipus Wrecks" and "Traduttore, Traditore" before I hit "post."

I need to think a smidgen longer before I hit that button.

You know, some of us bloggers will change titles if we think of a better one. And if we're feeling particularly Responsible To Our Readers™, we'll even disclose that we changed the title because the one we originally thought of just plain sucked.

Not that yours sucked, I'm just sayin', is all.

OneDrummer, it's shocking to females, too...you know, you wonder what you did, didn't do, things like that.

Jay, I rewrite titles often ... not frequently, just time and again (figure out what I *really mean* because even I confused myself with writing that)...was just saying, sometimes I rewrire titles and just did earlier tonight and then I see the Permalinks still published with the original, replaced titles and then links later...it's enough to cause one performance anxiety at the keyboard, no doubt about that, but I still rewrite titles without pause, just because I can.

Sometimes I make these technical snafus just because I know it drives the technically insane dictators of the internet crazier than they already are.
