I seriously had this conversation.

ME: What should we do for the new Utah Tourism campaign?

GUY AT MY WORK: We should be using cutting edge technology.

ME: Like what?

GUY AT MY WORK: I don't know, we should have people blogging from mountain tops.

ME: Blogging from mountain tops?

GUY AT MY WORK: Or podcasting. Yeah, podcasting from mountain tops.

PS: Yes, this is the same guy who's "out of pocket."

Riddle me this.

A savvy individual at my place of employment continues to use the phrase, "out of pocket" as a way to explain that he'll be out of the office for a few days.

Savvy Individual: Hey Steve, I'll be out of pocket this week. I'm going to DC.

Me: Pocket?

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the phrase in question reserved for the sole purpose of explaining that ones personal money will be used as opposed to company funds? It's simply a way to say, "I'll be paying for this out of my own pocket," right? I realize my Idaho upbringing disqualifies me from using or understanding business buzz phrases, but I must seek emotional restitution in this matter.

In the meantime, I'll continue developing fully integrated, turn-key solutions that have all their ducks in a row are built from the ground up.

Act fast people.

I'm sitting at the SLC Library working on an ad campaign. Just moments ago, two strange gentlemen decided to take an uncomfortably close seat directly across the table from me. I can readily smell one's cologne and the other's breath. Hard to say which is more painful.

As I post this blog, the two keep exchanging Spanish catch-phrases while flashing intense glances my way. They have with them many books concerning the mysterious nature of UFOs.

I just wanted to make sure I posted this blog, as it very well may be the last thing I do. Consider this evidence to my impending disappearance and/or probing.

In case I never told any of you, I love you dearly.
