1. “Is Starbucks in league with Sea Creatures?”
My boss came into the office today and asked me that question. Upon my looking it up and explaining that the logo was a picture of a mermaid, he gestured for me to follow him. Together we lumbered over to the doors of the cafeteria. He stopped and stared up into the corner just outside of the door. There, a wooden carving of a mermaid held Starbucks’ logo.
“So… is that it?” He asked.
“Yeah, that’s a mermaid. And that’s supposedly one, too,” I said, pointing to the logo in the mermaid’s hand.
He was silent for a few minutes, and then said, “Hmmm.”
“Is that new?” I asked.
“I sure hope so. It’s the first time I’ve seen it,” he said, and with an air of incredulity, led me back to my desk.
2. I STREETPASSED SOMEONE FROM JAPAN!
As in, a Japanese foreign exchange student! I streetpassed them! This only makes sense to people who have a 3DS! YESSSSSSS!
3. A friend forgave me (or rather, did not notice I did anything wrong)
I talked about the YouTube video I posted yesterday, where I basically cried because people were really kind to me. In that video, I apologized to a friend whom I had not spoken to in a long time for… uh, not speaking to them for a long time.
They responded, and said that they didn’t think I’d done anything wrong, and were extremely happy to have me back, and said that I was a much better person than I actually am. ;-;
I was very happy, and very touched. So it goes.
4. (BONUS!!) I am bewildered by Comedy
Yes, for my Capstone: Comedy and Satire course, I sat there for an hour and a half while my teacher spoke of so many texts, authors, theories, characters, and plots that I had never heard of that I’m pretty sure I was slack-jawed for half the class. Thankfully, I feel my bewilderment was at least a little bit shared my classmates, and I have the selfish security of knowing that I am not alone in my lack of comedic culture.
