1. I'm forgetting how to communicate with other homo sapiens.
The other day, I was talking to one of the parking guys for my building and when he asked me how my boss was doing, I couldn't quite make out what he had asked me so I asked for clarification, but instead of saying "Excuse me?" or "I'm sorry?", I uttered some incoherence that can only described as something in between animal yelp and Cro-magnon man. It was literally:
Me: Hahaha too much work sometimes.
Parking guy: [smiling in agreement before asking] How's An?
I think he just stood there for a few seconds before repeating to me what he'd just said very slowly, sounding out every syllable of the simple two syllable question, like you would to an infant.
2. Nothing I see in the cave that I inhabit called the office holds any bearing on reality.
A few weeks ago I was introduced to the phrase "ftw". I then proceeded to type www.google.com in my address bar before typing "ftw" in the search bar. Google for the win.
3. I have no idea what's going on.
Last week my boss found out it was Columbus Day at 10 in the morning on the day of.
So did I. In fact, I had to google "federal holidays" to figure out when I wouldn't have to come in to work again.
I think for the last few weeks, it's been ok since I have my friends the book, the TV and exercise to keep me company. But I think I'm realizing now that I need to actually make an effort to see other people. This is something I've never had to do before. Strange.
*on an unrelated note, Redeemer.com just posted 150 Tim Keller sermons online for free. Looks like 150 more commutes are taken care of for me. Thanks John for the heads up.
