Dear Friends,

The Hard Taco song for June is called, "Billion Lines of Code." We haven't gone completely paperless at work, but the need to preserve physical documents is less each year. In early 2018, I made the decision to do get rid of the oversized and underused file cabinet that came with my office and replace it with this freshwater aquarium.

This action has augmented my social situation in the workplace. Almost daily, a colleague passes my office door, waves, and asks, "How are the fish?" I've learned that if I keep my answer to a single word, the officemate is more likely to ask me again the next day. I value regular interpersonal connections, so I usually just reply, "Great!"

It's not much of a conversation, but before I had the aquarium, nobody ever asked me how my hanging file folders were.

I’ve got the fattest hands
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I’ve got the baddest band
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I knew a girl when I was back in the war
She had that vintage smell
What the hell was that for?
And you know, back then
Everything went according to plan
And you know, back then
I had the most checkered past
Will the record last
And if no,
I better set it again

I’ve got the bleakest grin
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I’ve got the weakest chin
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I knew the girl was hot stuff with an axe
She only turned heads
When she was breaking necks
And you know, back then
I had the most checkered past
Will the record last
I don’t know
I better set it again
