10:32 am - Puzzlin' Apple Dance
The other day my boss came over and asked me what "apple dance" is.

I said I didn't understand what she was referring to, and she said that she had just gotten off the phone with Johanna who had called her because I'd told her to provide some apple dance.

I said that I hadn't spoken with anyone named Johanna, and it took several minutes and a phone call to Johanna to figure out that I'd actually spoken to her assistant, and that the assistant had misheard the word "evidence".

This is almost as ridiculous as the time the Dispute Resolution Department received a letter addressed to the "Disappeared Evolution Department."

Look, if something doesn't sound right, ask for clarification. I know that the world of financial services can be difficult to understand, but there's a huge difference between impenetrably verbose and just plain silly.

I hope you realize of course, all your readers are now going to demand this so-called "apple dance" be it real or not.

Well now, hang on. I wasn't promising to do the Apple Dance. I was asking for it.

I've never understood that combination, but hey, I don't get apple pie with cheese, either.

Do you like the flavored apple dance? I'm a little repulsed by the sheer variety of apple dance flavors on the market today. We only had one kind of apple dance when I was a kid,

I hate to prove Jim right but now its time to invent an apple dance. Maybe its just you jiggling an apple but it could just possibly be the new Ana Ng. Do you really want to pass up that opportunity?

I still think you should just jiggle an apple around a bit.
