Three little words explained

Traffic

The word “traffic” means “all the cars except mine.” As the old slogan goes, “you’re not stuck in traffic, you are traffic.”

Away

The word “away” (as in “I’ll throw it away”) means “where someone else can deal with it.”

Bug

The word “bug” (as in “software bug”) means “my stupid mistake,” but suggests that an error somehow crawled (or flew) into my program without me being responsible. Which is sometimes a convenient fantasy.
