When I’m doing mindless tasks, I try to fill my mind with enlightening podcasts or think about important things or write stuff in my head. But while I was doing yardwork today, my mind spent several hours ruminating on a new term I picked up from a couple of geeky friends: Pwn. i.e., ‘owned’, i.e., ‘defeated’, i.e., ‘dominated, controlled’. Which is a pretty handy thing to know if some gamer is thinking that they’ve Pwn’d you, but which information is pretty pointless otherwise.
Once I chased that out of my head, I pondered the fact that my head was covered with a ratty Miller High Life hat. Which I got at Target because it was cheap, and because it fit, and because I thought it was ironic and funny, since I’m not the kind of person who would wear a Miller High Life hat. But today I realized that, since I in fact wear a Miller High Life hat, I’m exactly the kind of person who would wear a Miller High Life hat.
