Over the weekend I showed Finn a little bird-puppet animation, after which we had a little career chat:
- Me: I would like to work with Adobe guys to make things like that.
- Finn: Oh yeah–like a dung beetle?
- Me: Well… maybe…
- Finn: Is this with Nemhauser or the new boss?
- Me: The new one.
- Finn: Oh. I would like the new one to be named “Pretzel.” (Dad-O, can I have some pretzels?)
And here’s the crazier part: I subsequently shared this with one of my new colleagues who asked, “Does he know that my dog is named Pretzel?” I guess I know who (or what) I’ll now be reporting to!
