I've developed an interesting habit as of late.
It seems that whenever there is a whiteboard in the near
vicinity, I am compelled to grab a dry-erase marker, and write this exact phrase. (Preferably in blue. I don't know why, so don't ask.)
I was at work the week before last, and I had a plain whiteboard in my manager's office, and a nice selection of multi-colored dry-erase markers. I had a large supply of corporate logos scattered around his office which I drew on the whiteboard using the different color markers. They actually came out quite good.
As I was looking at the logo-filled whiteboard, there was
an empty white space on the far left. I decided that area needed something. Having run out of corporate logos, and being a fan of Britney Spears, I grabbed the blue marker and simply wrote:
rocks your socks
Just like that. My manager looked at the board, and admired my artistic work with the corporate prostitution on his whiteboard. He then eyed my Britney fan-art.
"What the fuck is that?"
I repeated aloud what I had wrote, and he started laughing. Later, I walked into his office and found that while the logos were all intact, the Britney-phrase had vanished! (There were suspicious blue remnants on the whiteboard eraser.) I proceeded to re-write the phrase in its original splendor. Again, he erased it in my absence.
This process repeated about ten to fifteen times throughout the day, and I managed to write it on the board
after he left for the day.
It was gone the next morning.
So now, as an homage to the original idea, I write this phrase on every whiteboard I come across. I just wrote it on the board for my CCSA / CCSE class, and the instructor gave me a strange look.
That's okay. It's probably because his socks are trying to force their way out of his shoes.
