I was reading an article in the library one day about aligning – how to align, who should align, why you should align. (When I was still working a day job, I think the preferred jargon was “on the same page.”)
The more I read about aligning, the sillier it sounded. For a while I played with all sorts of terrible puns and plays on words and basically got nowhere.
Then, on the drive home I was able to sort of mentally back away from “align” a bit and found this cartoon.
I’m sure in a few years “align” will be replaced with something else, but in the meantime this cartoon rings true and makes me really happy.
I quite like the word, “aligning” and hear it used every now and then. I don’t think I use it much myself. I think I use “tally up” or “out of sync” more.
In the context of this cartoon, I can appreciate the funny of it.
