So one of my favorite things about WordPress is the stats page, and all the various fun stuff you can keep track of in it.

This, of course, would direct people to my comments on the NSFSG’s (Non-Soluble Floatie Sugar Globules), the technical term which I made up for the little dehydrated marshmallows in prepackaged hot cocoa. How the search turned up my site was not the mystery here. The perplexing issue was what on earth someone was doing on Google looking for “floatie sugar shows”.
I wondered what it could be. Then I wondered if I didn’t want to know what it was. Curiosity got the better of me, though, and I Googled it.

Ahh, the things you learn on Google.
