Latest work dream: I was trying to troubleshoot a professor’s computer, but because it was a dream, all of the text on the screen kept changing. So I told the prof. “This will be easier to fix when we’re awake” and then woke up.
There’s a travel game we play where you look at a license plate and reverse-construct an acronym to produce the letters in the plate number.
This is what led to this morning’s discussion about the Ventilation Monkeys.
The plate isn’t important anymore. What’s important is that there are tribes of wild monkeys living in the HVAC systems of many large buildings. They sneak out at night and steal pencils. They rearrange office furniture so that you always wind up with the chair with the squeaky seat. They make bananas in the break room turn brown.
The bananas turn brown out of fear of the ventilation monkeys. Now you know.
