Levity and sanity are inexorably linked in my world. Particularly now. To that end, here is an interview of my ten-year-old to commemorate Take Your Kid to Work Day. Yes, I realize it's traditionally Take Our Daughters to Work Day, but it is just as important for little guys to see moms doing work they enjoy.
* We did not rehearse this and the responses are transcribed just as received. *
Mom: Do you remember the first time you went to work with me?
Louis: I remember I'd go into your old office, draw pictures on your white board, stuff like that.
Mom: What was the most embarrassing thing I've done to you at one of these things?
Louis: I actually don't know.
Mom: Are any of the meetings interesting?
Louis: Usually I bring a book. The one meeting at the UN was good. I also liked the Washington one (CPR Annual Meeting 2019); they had good soup.
Mom: Who has the best snacks in ADR?
Louis: It's a company where one of your friends works and they gave me a plate of cookies and chocolates just for me and I was like, "Now THIS is going to be good."
Mom: Does this make you want to go to law school?
