I’m Changing My Name

Yesterday at work I decided to change my name to Sisyphus Hirsch. If you don’t know Sisyphus is the guy in Roman mythology who had to spend eternity rolling a big rock to the top of a hill just to watch it roll back down and he had to start all over again. That’s how I’m feeling — especially at work. It’s like I finally think I’m making some progress in my work and BOOM the stone rolls back to the bottom of the hill.

Of course the other kids on the mythological playground would call me “Sissy Missy likes to Kissy” and never pick me for kickball so I guess that wouldn’t be such a good idea.

But really, do you ever feel like you just aren’t getting any where or even if you are getting somewhere it’s taking forever. Kind of like this winter … you think it’s going away and here it comes again. Perhaps we should change the name of our state from Minnesota to Sisyphusota. I like it.

  1. Yes, yes to all you said, but I digress: "Sisyphus" reminds me of Luke Sissyfag, and I had lost all memory of him. He is the activist who had his name legally changed to 'Sissyfag' to make a point back in the… the… I'm not sure, but it seems like the 70's to me, which means it was probably only 20 years ago. Wow, I haven't heard of him in a long time. OK, carry on now…
