my new favorite word

Monday, March 24th, 2008

We’re not even looking for interns but that doesn’t stop ambitious students from sending my company unsolicited resumes anyway. We got an internship application today from a well-educated, hopeful young lad from Florida who, among his interests lists “boating, sailing, fishing, and lobstering.” Notwithstanding the redundancy between boating and sailing, how does one conjugate the verb “to lobster?” I lobster, you lobster, he/she/it lobsters? If lobstering were translated into French, when would it take the vous form?

Need to get back to work. I’m trying to leave early today to take the new lobstering class at Equinox. It’s in between spinning and pilates.
