I was sitting in traffic today & glanced over at my fellow drivers, just to see if one of them was Matt Damon or Adam Brody. They weren't. I however did see a sign on the side of a van that said, "adept ______". (______ is not the actual name of the company, but a blank was used because I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings or get sued, because I'm just too pretty for that to happen. _____ is the name of a common service).
Now I just looked up the definition of adept in the dictionary so I could make fun of it more accurately. If I go with the dictionary's definition of adept, my rant just won't be good. So as princess of everything, I will say that I have always taken adept to mean, passable, fair. Apparently it means exceptional, but I've never heard it used in such a sense. It's always been used in a "That was stupid, but you're family & going to rule Canada someday so I guess it's ok" context. Not that anyone around me would have cause to use it in such a context. So, if I think it's an odd name for a company, imagine what the masses are feeling. In order to save the good people of adept _______ who do not look like Matt Damon, may I suggest the following names:
Not so bad ________
Our Mom's don't hate us
Was not voted the most hated in high school
The opposite of appalling
Mediocrity is better than crappy
This is exactly the reason why I should leave the naming of future children to Adam Brody.
P.S. I just noticed that I used the phrase "former college" instead of alma mater. They must be so proud at ______ college.
