He's learning...

I told F yesterday that I am going to Moldova for a couple of days.

He asked, "Are they going to split up?"

(We had had a number of conversations earlier in the year about my visits to Montenegro and Kosovo.)

He already knew that Moldova had split up from Russia, and so did Ukraine and "Blerrus" and "Lativia".

I explained that indeed there are people in Moldova who want to split it up and join their bit onto Russia, but the problem is that Russia is now quite a long way away from Moldova, and anyway I don't think the people who want to split up Moldova are very nice people.

He's only seven. I suspect we will have more conversations like this, at least as long as I stay in this line of work...

He should get a job as a political analyst. I think he's just passed the entrance exam...

Children sometimes pick up too much from work related conversations. A few weeks ago our 4.5 year old started one of his 'stories'. The classical stuff: knight, dragons and a princess. Until he came to 'and then the night came to a firewall which stopped him'.

I've told him my job is to stop wars. Which is easier to explain than my next job...

Uhm,... not a chance, if he develops his own genuine interest. Talk about passing the torch!

Crazy(or maybe just sharing it for awhile before you hit retirement and F. continues his career...)Soph

PS is it any coincidence that the word labelling one's work-trajectory is the same as the one for dashing off on a mad run?
