  • Don't let that exclamation point bookcased by those two question marks fool you. I'm sardonic. Not angry. And I really love the idea of Latin, and its sentence syntax whereby all words are conjugated and can be arranged any which way.

    I like the title, and I hope you like the title too.

    It's confusing and I am a bit confused.

    That's because I'm at work. And instead of working, I am writing my introductory Cowbird post.

    I come in to the office every day. And I just sort of, exist.

    I have been waiting all month for that severance dialogue.


    Then yesterday learned I the hell what for my boss is paying me!

    He's paying me to eliminate his year-end taxes on a corporate account. He is a "C Core" as he calls it (probably stands for C-Corporation) and will be double taxed if there's any money left at the end of the year.

    So he hired some "extra staff."

    Extra staff like this writer who hardly writes anything for him.
