For all of you who are wringing your little hands waiting for me to post something, I have family in town this week and they keep wanting me to pay attention to them for some reason so I won't be posting as often for a little while. DRY YOUR EYES, MY SWEETS. However, I saw this tidbit last night and decided I couldn't let it get away.
I was reading an online ad yesterday (yes, I was that bored; come entertain me) and saw an ad for a realtor named Ed something-or-other. However, according to his ad, he apparantly prefers to go by "'Special' Ed" (quotation marks are his). What? OK. First let us examine this. If the man in question were actually mentally disabled in some manner, do you think he would honestly go by this nickname? Or that anyone would actually have the guts to call him that? No. OK, so we've established that he does not have a mental disability. So it then begs the question: why in the name of all that's holy would you voluntarily nickname yourself this and suggest others know you by the same? And not just your friends, but potential business clientele? What could possibly be going through this man's head? According to his website, "I am known as "Special" Ed because of the "Special" treatment you receive when you work with me and my team." Huh. Still unbelievable.
I really can't wrap my mind around this and have nothing further to offer except, what? No seriously, what? What?
