There Once was a sprite named APS. He was a straight forward, fun loving, cherubic and cool sprite that loved to frolic in fields and well... you get the picture.
Before I continue, let me warn you that the following story is not depressing, nor will it make you cry, nor will it alter your life in any sort of way. At all. What it will do is make you chuckle to yourself and think "Goodness, whoever wrote this story needs to get out more often." And you'd be right about that.
APS loved books, trees and all things green (including brussel sprouts) and generally anything science fiction or fantasy. Except vampires...
He dillied and dallied and flitted and flotted and basically, everything was good in the world.
Then came along CSS, a lingo that jived in crazy ways, loved mind games and generally
Messing You UP!
CSS was HTML's springling and no matter how HTML scolded, CSS would always find new sprites to fool with and, generally, mess up.
jQuer was also a springling. She was was charming, powerful and a had many more worshippers than her brother, MooToo. They were twins but didn't like talking to each other much.
Their followers caught on to that and were always shaking fists at each other. Though they tilted noses at each other, they WERE related as they were both the springlings of JS. JS loved them both equally though JS gave more DOM to MooToo.
JS loved another though - JS loved HTML very much and in an exciting and secretive way - but I digress! That's another story for another time. The JS family is featured in this story's sequel - Web Programming, APS and the Glass Elevator that Has a Mind of Its Own. We'll save that one for another day...
One fine day when all the sky was blue, the sun was yellow and PS Scop (an app) was being walked around by it's master, APS, they happened to cross paths with CSS
And (warning! Trekky ALERT!) it was like Data's ode to spot. Sorta cute but mostly WTF...?
They dingled and dangled, crished and crashed, fooled and were fooled and wristled and wrastled and generally struggled for TOTAL DOMINANCE over each other. It was then that CSS thought to hisself, "Osh kosh megosh... I may have met my match," and frowned as only it could. And at the same moment APS thought to himself, "WTF!$$(); yOUR Line 3898 is missing and Unexpected ; with a Quarkmash () T_varPul."
I hope you get the picture cause well, what more is there to say? They were in love and yet they hated each other's guts. It is the stuff that epics are made of and it is both painful and brilliant to observe, but mostly disturbing.
Thus ends chapter one of Web Design, APS Relentless Love Story. Tune in next update to find read about APS's encounters with the JS family.
