You’ve had it happen. You’re going along your life, minding your own business, and you encounter something, and that something just keeps coming up, over and over, as though it is trying to tell you something. For me, it’s usually a word or a phrase or a factoid that I didn’t know, and suddenly it is everywhere. This time, though, it’s:
You know million. I know million. It’s a number that used to seem bigger than it seems now. It’s the number of pixels that let this guy get that many dollars of ad revenue on a web page. Apparently it’s also the number of lies you can tell and still have Oprah back you up as a stand-up guy.
Hopefully, now that I’ve thought about it long enough to write and post this entry, “million” will leave me alone for a while.
