The Little Things


Sometimes it’s the little things that make it worthwhile. Today, for example, I spent 2 hours working on a network firewall whose brand name, Ben Hur, is eerily close to the Bavarian phrase, bin a hur, which means, roughly, I am a prostitute. This is why I giggle to myself when I think there’s no one watching.


Also, I get to swear a lot a work, since none of these cretins speak English well enough to know what “oh you cocksucking piece of fucking shit” actually means, in the book sense.


In a related train of thought, I was in Kissing, Bavaria yesterday. Streams of consciousness being what they are, I immediately thought of Henry Kissinger, whose name means someone who comes from Kissing, and then I thought to myself, jeez, I haven’t come from Kissing since high school, which then dead-ended into a search for a half-joke that cratered into a mixed-metaphore here at the usually-reliable youbitch.


Indeed, the little things can make an otherwise dreary, grey, and cloudy day all smily.


Oh, and there was a bug.
