Day 2371: Tell me about it

I’m going to tell you about Merriam-Webster’s definition of “tell me about it.”

tell me about it (idiom)

Definition of tell me about it
—used to say that one understands what someone is talking about because one has had the same or a similar experience
“Something is wrong with that computer.” “Yeah, tell me about it. I can never get it to work properly.”

I don’t know if something is wrong with my computer, but I can’t post a shortened version of this video (in which I seem to be saying “Tell me about it” for 18 minutes) (and which I first told you about in this post) to YouTube.

Let me tell you about what happens when I (and perhaps you)  click on that link.  I receive a message that says “Unable to process this video.”  However, I could still download it, although I got a message that told me “Google Drive can’t scan this file for viruses. Free.mp4 (1.4G) is too large for Google to scan for viruses. Would you still like to download this file?”

Too complicated or too much trouble?  Tell me about it.

Once my son returns from teaching English in Jordan, maybe he can tell me about how to post that video (which he shot in our gazebo two weeks ago) to YouTube.  If you do look at the video, tell me about which title you prefer:

  • “Tell me about it.”
  • “Free therapy with Ann.”
  • “I’m listening.”

I can also tell you about the original, unedited, noisy, uncentered version of that video, which is here:

At this point, when I’m looking at a preview of this post, I’m telling you that video has this message: “Please wait. We are converting this video.”

Tell me about it.

In the meantime, I’m going to tell you about these recent photos I haven’t told you about before.




























Which is your favorite photo?  Tell me about it.

Tell me about your reactions to this music in the air:

I want to break free of more technical problems, but I won’t tell you about it.  Instead, I’ll tell you about my gratitude to all who support my telling you about it, every day, here on WordPress.




Thoughts about those ways of expressing gratitude?  Tell me about it.

YouTube now tells me that this very abbreviated, silent version of “Free Therapy with Ann” has shown up there.

My expression in that still shot, above, seems to say, “Tell me about it.”  If I manage to post a longer version, I’ll tell you about it.

  1. Sorry to read about your technical woes, Ann. Maybe you need a reboot and cache clear to get the gremlins out in the relationship between Apple and Google? But maybe clear history won’t help at all. I’m no genius about it of course.

  2. Technical problems? Tell me about it. I can only get the Queen video to play. Telling enough people, though, may lead you to the right answer–if a truck can lead you to your next great meal anything’s possible.

    • Thanks for telling me about all that, Chris. I need to tell you that I’ve added some important photos I forgot to include when publishing that post as well as a two-minute version of the video that finally showed up on YouTube.

  3. King cats will tell you about it when they write their novels.

  4. Thank you for listening to me. I found your comments, in our session, to be so insightful and supportive!

  5. Ann! I love that 18 minute free therapy session! How did you manage to do that for 18 whole minutes?Were you listening to something through invisible earbuds? Or will you just working from your imagination and memory? I must return for some more free therapy. 18 minutes seems like the perfect amount.

    I wasn’t able to follow the link that you posted but I could click on the video with the little arrow.

    • I think you’ll understand how I did that when I tell you about it, Maureen: My son Aaron was taping me and I found it very easy to be empathic with him for 18 minutes.

  6. I was given a calendar block with a page to tear off each day for Christmas. Each day we have a new word. The Dictionary used is Mirriam-Webster making for interesting usages for an Englishman. Just thought I’d tell you about it
