2 Hilarious things to share:

First, my ten year-old brother informed me that he was joining a band:

Bro: I’m joining a band.

Me: Really! What instrument are you playing?

Bro: The triangle. Actually, the Electric Triangle. [Followed by guitar distortion sounds produced from brother’s mouth, alongside the striking of an “air triangle.”]

Secondly, I’ve been growing a beard. Rather, I’ve attempted a beard for a good 6 weeks or so. Today at work, a coworker (honestly) asked me if I was Amish. Bear in mind that I am a type of software engineer.

I informed her that in my cubicle I have a wooden laptop.

When pressed, I mentioned that I “used to be, but just wasn’t plain enough for them.” We’ll see how far this goes.
