Hi! Good morning!! I’m here I’m here I’m here !!! And not, you know, in Vancouver. Teeheehee.
That was fun.
Since I’m sure you already saw this one coming from a mile away, we’ll just jump right to it. Today’s word is verdant: lacking experience, naive.
In other words …
You guys, I can be so verdant! Did any of you get pranked yesterday? (Other than my geeky attempt to usher April in with a little fun, at least). Because I did!!
I only work in a small corner of Corporate World, and the company I’m part of has a few brands under its Actually Giant And Not Small At All Corporate
Umbrella. One of them uses dogs in all of its advertising – radio, print, and tv. Yesterday morning there was an announcement on our internal company site saying that the brand would begin using cats for mascots, and I bought the whole thing …
… up until the closing line, which read, ” With memes, jokes and online videos, the Internet has truly helped cats claw their way to the forefront of the animal kingdom. Can we make this change and give our customers want they want? Yes we cat”. (And yes, I copied and pasted the article and emailed it to myself at home. See?! Geek!!)
I hope you had a great day yesterday, and that you were wiser and more savvy than me! And I hope that you’ll come back tomorrow, when we’ll be talking about television and I will try to sound a little wiser and savvier myself.
