“What are you coding?”

“A character trait.”

“What is it?”

“Common-sense.”

“Never heard of it.”

“Yeah, it’s foreign now but it’ll catch on.”

“How’s it work?”

“It cuts down on SNAFU’s.”

“You’ll be rich!”

Micro a Small Consideration

“Micro” for being such a small word it packs a lot of power. It is an adjective for so many nouns it boggles the mind. It’s a prefix for almost any noun imaginable. Micro has limitless flexibility for building new nouns as needed relating to the extremely really ‘tiny’.

As a verb “micro-ing” might catch on but never at an all-you-can-eat buffet. “Just go micro,” no haute cuisine thrill there.

Fans often shout, “Go big or go home,” to show our team loyalty or almost as often at spelling bees; never,  “Go micro, shish-boom-bahh.”

I remember when people spoke of getting “small” after inhaling a lot of smoke.  I heard comparative talk about how small these individuals thought they were, “I’m so small, I’d fall through the joint in the floor.”

“That’s crack in the floor.”

“No, man, that’s another head, dude.”

Micro also has the connotation for exquisite or careful. That’s plastic surgery down to the micro scale, very fine, very careful, no scar. Nice and refurbished and looking good.

After working the nouns all day Micro rings up Nano and they go out on the town for big fun and macro-relaxation.

Go big or go home.
