Fridays are tough. Friday the 13th is super tough, eliciting email strings like these:

Friend: Then we can get a really good lane and figure out the dedication ceremony for the ball.
Me: I'll defer to the Big Lebowski for our inspiration for dedication. See you tonight.

Me: Mos def.** And I don't mean the extremely attractive rapper/actor.*
Friend: I just had to google him, agreed on the attractiveness :-)
Me: Seriously!? Did you miss the 90s or something?
Friend: I blame the generational gap :-) ***
* If you need edification, see this.
**I wonder if Mr. Def ever gets sick of having his name taken in vain.
*** She's only got three years on me.
