About a week ago I noticed that the rear window of our new car sported some graffiti. It must have been done by someone who spends less time on gravel roads than I do and doesn’t appreciate the futility of keeping a car washed if you do travel on gravel roads.

As best I could make out, it said, “Hi! Yo! Waz up homi werido!” I particularly liked “werido.” Not that I always spell weird correctly, but I do usually keep the e and the i next to each other. Is the perpetrator calling me a werido, or does he want me to offer that greeting to people driving behind me? (Maybe I’m just showing my ignorance. “werido” is listed in the Urban Dictionary.)
