Snapshots From My Worklife

Blaine came in this morning and asked me how to print out his contact list from Outlook. I had no idea, but looked it up on Outlook Help and walked him through it.

Yellow came in a while later:

"Kameron, you're a writer. You know all about this spelling stuff. How do you spell wussify?"

"Huh? Like, somebody who's a wuss?"

"Yea, yea. They're a wuss, and by doing something crappy, you're wussified."

"Wussify isn't a real word, Yellow."

"Yea, yea, but if it was, how would you spell it?

"It's not... oh, nevermind. W-U-S-S-I-F-Y."

"Oh, great thanks. See, I knew you'd know how to spell it."

::Yellow bumbles off::

I call after him, "Wussify is NOT A REAL WORD!"

"It's OK. All the guys'll know what I'm talking about!"

This is what I do for a living.

I suppose in Yellow's defense it is a real word in guy speak. I know I've used it before.

Damn, I've spent too many years out of the guy culture loop. I'm guy-culture deprived....
