Note to Self:

You often use the word "terribly" to describe things that are far from terrible.  Like the other day at the grocery store when you said to the clerk (I'm not sure why they're called clerks instead of employees aside from perhaps the cool connotation of a slightly indie film), "I'm terribly sorry but do you know where I can find the peanut butter."  There was nothing terrible about the apology aside from the fact that you really had nothing to be sorry about.  I don't get the sense that he was seriously focussed on the task at hand. After all, he was stocking toilet paper not writing a doctoral thesis.
