I have a roving mind. I'm sure that's a shock to everyone. Through the course of each week I tend to accumulate random wonderings in my mind, most of which never evolve into anything other than a niggling question that's going to bother me until I 1) ask someone who knows or 2) go find the answer myself.
1) The word "testify" more than likely does not have any relevancy to a man's testicles, which has me kind of sad, as I wanted to use it as Wednesday Wolf, but didn't have enough evidence that it's factual. I'm bummed by this, as I'd really like to be able to use the female counterpart "Boobify!" to indicate my strong agreement with someone else.
|Why no, I *don't* get out much|
3) The brain is an amazing thing. It makes your mouth have knee-jerk reactions. When I was potty-training my youngest, I had a student come up to the circulation desk and ask me if she could use the bathroom. I said, "Yes, and don't forget to wipe." She was kind of mortified. Those random synapse firings can take you strange places.
