Two-For-One Mild Social Gaffes Wednesday

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Unintentional bugging of a colleague, that sort of thing. Gar.

Tonight I see a friend, for the last time before she moves, at a bar entitled the Last Day Saloon. Many people (author included) accidentally call it the Last Chance Saloon, which is funny in the same way that it is funny when people call George Lakoff's Women, Fire, and Dangerous Things by the name Women, Fire, and Other Dangerous Things.
