Val’s in the midst of taking a half-semester class in geographic information systems (GIS) for fun. I think she’s liking it so far. Yeah, she just likes playing with maps on computers.
The class is in the building my mom works in, so the other day we stopped by to say hi. My mom had Adam with her. I stayed for a bit and hung out with Adam. We played with my mom’s paper supplies and fashioned Adam a sweet mustache and beard made from a legal pad.
When we got bored with that we looked at one of my mom’s nameplates. This one was a piece of paper attached to the outside of her cube. It said her name on it, but it wasn’t that neat looking. When she walked away from her desk I quickly sat down and printed her a new sign that said her name. I needed some flair so I used the Curlz font. While Curlz is a very professional font, I figured I’d emphasize that by putting below my mom’s name the words, “I’m a professional” — just so people know who they’re dealing with.
My mom got a good laugh at her new sign. I got a bigger laugh when she said it was time to put the old one back up. We looked for it and realized Adam had it and was laughing hysterically. My mom grabbed her original sign with her name, which now had written in pen the words, “I’m cool.” My mom said, “Adam! That’s my sign!” to which Adam replied, “I thought that was the old one!”
Pretty funny from my point of view! Anyways we then printed my mom up a new, normal, non-Curlz sign and everything went back to normal…or did it?!?
