See, the good thing about there being only three of us left in my department is that our Indian contingent has pointed out that as well as being the Christian Trinity, we can be the Hindu Trinity: the Creator, the Preserver, and the Destroyer.

Creator and Preserver are the other two, for reasons that are funny (or at the very least; apt) if you know them. I was automatically given Destroyer – I assumed because I ruin everything and spoil all that is good. But as it turns out, The Destroyer destroys evil things, and my fairly direct hand in the resignation of the HOD earns me that title.

Short version: I have a better job than you, because during the course of your working day you probably didn’t get the chance to say:

“I am become Shiva, Destroyer of Worlds. Finally!”

Must be an English teacher thing -- Arna's in the habit of proclaiming "I am Vishnu!" at irregular intervals. There's no real motivation -- it's just a thing she does.

Oh, and the word's Trimurti.
