Steve Almond analyzes Toto’s “Africa.” Genius. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.

1. This is fantastic.

2. One time Greg tried to karaoke this song and it was the worst idea ever.

This is for that roommate who incessantly played college a cappella group recordings of Toto’s greatest hits.  She know who she is and what she wrought.

necessary backstory: her coworker just had their officemate's baby and got caught by her boyfriend trying to pass it off as his

  • J: read receipts make me happy in a really lame way
  • see also: hacking voicemail systems to get direct extensions
  • E: ahh, you're a cubicle drone now
  • do you have a labelmaker?
  • J: oh, you love your labelmaker, shut up
  • E: because that thing brings me the kind of joy usually reserved for new moms
  • "you can't possibly understand until you have one yourself"
  • J: but no, no label maker as of yet
  • i'm waiting til the time is right
  • when i'm a little more stable, financially
  • E: sure, and emotionally prepared
  • just so you know, mom once told me she wouldn't mind if i had a labelmaker before marriage
  • but she would really prefer it if i waited until things were legal
  • J: it's a personal decision
  • i'd at least like to be involved with a three-hole-punch i felt i could count on until i really start thinking about label makers.
  • E: well, as we learned from your coworkers, never lie about where you get your office supplies
  • because staples does NOT accept returns from office depot

The great disadvantage of watching the Olympics as a historian is that, after a glass or two of wine, you’re all “Zubok and Pleshakov! Didn’t they dominate with the Pamchenko at the Albertville Games?”
