An idle thought: what does the “e” stand for in “eharmony”?
My poet friend and I were debating this crucial question the other day. I offered the general assumption: “electronic” (like, “electronic mail” for “e-mail”), and we both started laughing.
Seriously? Electronic Harmony??
How funny is that?
So we suggested other possibilities. I said, “Electrifying!” And he rebutted with “Epileptic!”
The conversation dissolved into laughter at that point. I ended with, “maybe elliptical?” — as in, being entirely tangential.
Let’s hope. It’s certainly better than “electronic” as a start for possible romance.
