I don’t know how else to put it

Let’s see. Concert starts at 9:30 p.m. It will take a half-hour to drive there and another half-hour to park and walk.

Odds of being done with today’s workload by 8 p.m.? Pretty low.

Odds of me missing this concert? Even lower.

As I had the opportunity to help bring three promising individuals onto our team this week, I got to thinking about the last round.

I honestly believe everyone has a talent. Even if that talent is watching, learning and mimicking.

That’s not a talent we’re working with.

What I struggle with is that when people just don’t understand things, they don’t understand that YOU don’t understand them the same way they do.

Like, I’m sitting here seeing a sentence that was submitted pretty much as “The sky is blue during the daytime.”

Fine. Readable enough.

But if the first law of editorial is “do not introduce error,” I smell a life sentence for this:

The interpretation is essentially, “Cornflower is the essence of the nighttime because daytime is blue.”

And you know me. I have to rage. And then I shut down. And then I put up my “away” message and solve the problem.

Which is mostly that everyone knows the damn sky is blue so why even include it?

In any event. Someone made mention that things will be this way for a long time. And I died. Absolutely, utterly, crushingly died.



Silly fool

Gotta love catching people in lies.

I never say anything.

But damn it, I know.

No wonder they surround themselves with dumb people and make it their personal mission to destroy the smart ones.

I used to think I’d rather play dumb than be dumb. But I’m beginning to think the latter are happier in their bliss …



Tried and failed

Forget the fuck, marry or kill game.

I’m marketing my own game called fire, kill or kill-and-bring-back-from-the-dead-so-I-can-kill-again.

I just told a friend that I’m going to owe her a big bottle of dinner. For the therapy.



Could apply to any situation, really

Me: Remembers outstanding project.

Me: Hey friend, go ask so-and-so about such-and-such

Friend: They swear they are working on it and they are doing it X way.

Me: Groan

Friend: Yeah so I said well we really want it Y way.

Me: Love you

Friend: So, so-and-so said, “Yes, that’s exactly what I was going to say.”

Me: Groan

Friend: You hear that a lot?

Me: You could say.

Friend: I don’t get it. If you were going to say it, then say it first.

Me: Or do it.

Friend: That works too.



I’m losing IQ points just thinking about it

Can’t wait to see what Somebunny has in store for me today.

I am starting to worry that I’m going to become violent.

Somebunny may put Throat-Punch Thursday to good use after all.

I can’t wait till I can write about it.

Lord please let it be sooner rather than later.
