My first thought upon reading this article was a Spanish joke: "Que dice la orilla a la mar? Hola, ola".* I might have said this out loud to myself and then giggled.

Now I not only have to fear turning into my mother but also my eccentric male professor/boss of an indeterminate age. Too early to start drinking?

*What did the shore say to the sea? Hello, wave.
