Today is Office Cleaning Day. Also known as Finally Go Through All of the Old College Boxes Day, and scare yourself silly when you uncover the largest, hairiest and perhaps actually moving dust bunny EVER day. (Quickly followed by sucking that beast up with the shiny red Hoover that after pet-sitting now smells suspiciously like wet dog. Harumph.)
And, in sorting and throwing out, organizing, dusting and running up and down the stairs about five gazillion times… I found the following ad, which, in college I’d cut out the words and adhered to my institutionalized cinder block walls with yellow, staining handi-tac:
BEWARE THE LOLLIPOP OF MEDIOCRITY.
LICK IT ONCE AND YOU SUCK FOREVER.
And that my friends, has been a guiding bold all uppercase text muse to me ever since.
