Bittersweetness

This morning my oldest said "When I'm [an adult] I'm going to work where you do so I can see you at work." How sweet! It completely melted my heart.

But I'm not sure that I'd wish a career in software on the poor kid. Sure it pays well, but the yearly lay-offs take their toll on a body. Perhaps instead a career as an actuary, where the job is stable and the pay is high enough to allow the old man to retire early.

A fellow can dream, can't he?
