"Re: Source"

I was working on one of my Databases Of Trivial Stuff (DOTS), figuring out data types and their relationships as apply to Oxymorons or Murphy’s Laws or Tom Swifties and I was talking out loud to myself (which, since I was working alone, nobody would care about, notice or even know of if I didn’t blog about it).

“I need to differentiate between my Research Source and the Original Source.
Call it Origin?
I’d rather use Source, but they can’t both be “Source”…
Source…
Source…
Source?
Of course!
Go right to the source and ask the horse!
He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse!
He’s always on a steady course!”

I could have stopped then but I didn’t…
“As long as you don’t try to take it by force!
Or using the code named for Samuel Morse!”

I stopped searching for true rhymes and free-styled…
“Don’t carry it home inside anything porous,
Or sing all the verses and forget the chorus,
Or keep it in back of my ’95 Taurus,
I won’t get anywhere if I ride a slow loris!
She’s so cute I’m gonna name her Cloris!
I could keep it up but it just would get worse
I wonder if it can be found at a bourse
This may be a course that will make you curse
While the Animaniacs say “Hello Nurse!”

It was at this moment that I realized that not only was a total system failure and meltdown of my mental faculties imminent, but it might not be a bad idea.

Your Turn...
