Some of my coworkers retired at the end of March.
Everybody makes the workplace happy. Some when they arrive, some when they leave.
Some are real lulus. I had that song stuck in my brain too. I remember it as a cutesy “Adult” song from back in the day of euphemisms.
Is there a euphemistic way of referring to euphemisms?
What synonyms are there for synonym?
And what about Dennis Rader?
Sometimes my mind doesn’t simply wander, my train of thought derails and careens wildly through non sequiturs. And according to Merriam Webster I spelled that correctly, but the spellcheck running in the background didn’t like it. It’s been in the English language since the 1500s. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/non%20sequitur
Dennis Rader was the BTK killer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Rader
In some documentaries they talk about serial killers feeling like they have no control over their life. So they take control by killing people. BTK exemplifies this in that he stopped killing after he became a code enforcement officer. When he could be a real asshole to people and they didn’t really have any recourse, he didn’t feel the need to kill.
It makes me wonder how many “Little Hitlers” would turn into serial killers if they didn’t have their own little realm to rule over.
Then I wonder if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that they have those little realms. How many people do they make miserable through “Legitimate” outlets compared to how many people do they make miserable by being a serial killer?
On the bright side, whichever they do they don’t live forever. All reigns end sometime. Into all lives a little reign must fall.
One coworker I will miss, the other is a joy to not see any more.
