I swear I meant SEC

My embarrassing moments just keep crashing into me. Yesterday at work, my boss asked me if I could look up a check we had written to a vendor. The way we name common vendors is by using the first three letters of the name. For example, if we wrote a check to Taco Bueno, the code would be TAC100 or something. The vendor name in this case was SEC. Boss standing behind me, I commence check search. I was staring at the screen instead of my fingers. Instead of typing in SEC, I typed in SEX! I didn't even realize it until he said, "Well, is that what's on your mind today?" Usually I wouldn't have even blushed, but it was my boss. And it was also an honest mistake. The C and X are right next to each other.

I got to see Doug yesterday. Instead of him having to look at a gross fever blister, he had to endure my peeling skin from this weekend's sunburn. Lucky him! I promise I don't always look this bad! So we're driving back to my apartment and I see a vehicle that has six ichthys/ichthus/"Christian Fish" drilled in on the back. Two big fish, four little fish. Arranged such that the big fish were leading the four little fish. The license plate said "family." I can only guess this means it was a family of six Christians. How unbelievably nauseating! I'll give you one guess as to what type of vehicle it was. If you said minivan, give yourself a gold star for the day!

Hmm. I guessed an 80s model Pontiac four-door, light metallic blue, on the verge of breaking down at all times. I was way off.

Close...but no gold star for you!

What did Mr. Depp do now? Was it his US comments or the freaky teeth he's sporting in Charlie?

It's not that he DID anything. I read on his imdb.com bio how he dropped out of school at 15, lives in Paris to avoid publicity, and he has two tots with a woman he has no intentions of committing to. I have issues with these things, mainly the dropping out of high school. Yes, I think anyone that drops out of high school is a loser. There is some grey for extenuating circumstances, but very little.

Reduce your searches to two letters. At least with your boss (or other people) around.
