Do you think, right now a group of nomadic, borderline-literate shepherds are writing a book on how to live that will be shoddy, inconsistent, morally repugnant, and just plain dumb, yet in 2,000 years people will go: nailed it!

Thanks. I wish you weren’t anonymous so I could pat you on the back too.
Streets ahead, one step behind
A friend and I were just talking about “Community” (because it’s a day that ends in Y). He let loose the expression, “Streets ahead” and I talked about remembering the twitter meltdown. He went googling it and came up with my name…or a slight misspelling of it in this article. Good times!
Him: Harmon is always streets ahead on his slang.
Me: I was so unrealistically invested in that. I saw the original twitter meltdown, and when it made its way into a script, I had such an undeserved ownership of the moment.
[He goes googling, comes up with this article, doesn’t realize it was me.]
Him: “went back to find something that had the old theme song tweets in them because I like them. Found this:
“Fan Tim Stoltz suggested that Harmon bring “streets ahead” into the world of Community, but it seems Harmon was one step ahead of him.
@tim_stoltz : @danharmon Your hatred of “Glee” has made its way into “Community;” how long till your new favorite phrase makes it?
@danharmon : @tim_stotz I’m putting it in the current script, so it’ll be a few weeks. But I have to get the world understanding it by then!”
One letter away from having actual ownership.”
Me: I forgot about that! Follow question: is that real? I don’t remember doing it…though it seems pretty like me to say. [I didn’t quite get what he meant, and didn’t understand he didn’t realize it was I who had originally said it, and didn’t even see the misspelling of my last name at first.]
Him: Oh, fuck, that IS you. haha. They just got the name wrong. It links to your twitter. ha
