The resident faculty left a link to a Twitter hashtag outside the mail room this morning. The Squirrel hopes it was just a clue…. (More)

Thus we return to the Twitter hashtag left outside the mail room as the resident faculty made their way from the wine cellar library where they spent the weekend drinking thinking on our motto of Magis vinum, magis verum (“More wine, more truth”) to the hot tub faculty lounge for their weekly game where the underwear goes flying planning conference.

The hashtag is #SquirrelStyle, with entries like these:

“Do they expect you to write all week?” Chef asked the Squirrel as she brought out the decoder ring.

The Squirrel shook his head and tapped at his Blewberry: “Nope. The clue means they’re going to hop around topics, like squirrels.”

“Really?” Chef asked.

“Really,” the Squirrel texted.

“But you usually drag this out more,” the Professor of Astrology Janitor said. “Don’t we need some clever repartee before you reveal the topic?”

“I haven’t even scraped stray pecans into your bowl yet,” Chef said.

The Squirrel shrugged. “We tried clever repartee and it kept spiraling into dead ends that weren’t funny or even interesting. So we hit block select and deleted it and started again, and again, and again. Meanwhile, the clock kept ticking and now we’re late. So, no pecans this morning, I guess.”

“Oh phooey,” Chef said, scraping stray pecans into his bowl.

“Please don’t delete that,” the Squirrel texted.

We didn’t.


Happy Monday!
