A conversation two days ago in the car.

Rae: Mommy, what’s a fire chief?

Me: He’s the leader of all the firemen.

Rae: What does he do?

Me: He tells the other firemen where to go and what to do when there’s a burning building.

Rae: But…but that’s so BORING!

Me: (bursts out in chuckles) Why?!

Rae: He never gets to do ANYTHING then?

Me: Of course he does. Sometimes he gets to climb the ladders and spray the water with the hose if he wants to.

Rae: …still boring.

My daughter will not grow up to be an accountant. Or an editor, that’s for sure.
