Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.

Two conversations.

7a.m. at the kitchen table.

William: Dogs haf’ tails.
Me: Yes, dogs have tails.
William: Horsies haf’ tails.
Me: Yes, horses have tails.
William: Bunnies haf’ tails.
Me: Yes, bunnies have tails - cute little fluffy ones.
PAUSE
William: Pipple haf’ tails - NOOOOO! (Furious shaking of head)
Me: No, people don’t have tails.

4p.m. at the boardroom table.

J: Guys, the pre-launch two-state test is about to roll out. We’re implementing the Thoresian strategy based on prior learnings going forward. We’ve got above the line, through the line and below the line and it’s been successfully focus-group tested.
K: Great. Ambient?
J: Check. Plus viral. We’re excited about viral. It’s big.
K: It’s huge.
Me (THINKING): WTF?

I don’t know why I go to work, really. I can get more sense out of a 23 month old baby than a room full of adults.

Perhaps you should take William to work, maybe he can talk some sense into them?

I doubt you can talk sense into marketing strategy people, Tiberia. He'd have fun with the coloured pencils and layout pads, however.
