Three little words explained


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


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


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.
