Kordax

Okay, so my manager has reengaged in being manager of the Student Records group. This means that he is actually being a manager these days and is present. I can tell him stuff and he makes things happen from there. And instead of just stumping along doing boring Help Desk trying to make a full day of it, I have other assignments that are actually interesting and useful. This is a Good Thing.

He popped in a few minutes ago, and we chatted over changes to the system for Major/Minor requests and some other documentation he's been hunting down for me about Grad Admissions. Meanwhile, he's thumbing through the copy of Depraved and Insulting English on my desk. Our normal business ends, and he asks, "So have you ever seen a kordax?"

I said, "What's a kordax?"

He quoted from the book, "A penis dance performed by horned figures in the Dionysian festivals of ancient Greece."

I said, "Um, well actually, I have. Did you know I participate in a neo-Hellenic pagan group?"

He blushes.

I continue, "And Tate's winkie dance is world reknowned."

He had to go suddenly.

Now that he's actually doing his job, I'm reminded that Javier is actually a pretty fun guy. Every visit to my desk includes a new depraved or insulting word, but in a good way.

  • Exactly what book is this ? it sounds like lots of fun and lots of trouble .

    Kinda like a dictionary with only the naughty bits.

  • Tate's winkie dance!! Damn, that's what was missing from camp for the last couple of years. The music, the lighting, the energy! It's a show that should not be missed!
