I tell myself that one day my daughter’s traits will serve her well as the head of a company – or even maybe a small banana republic.  

But for now, her skills are just massively impeding my ability to parent.

She really detested corporate euphemism. 

Every time she heard senior management talk about “transformation,” she felt sick. 

They made it sound like everyone was going to come out as beautiful butterflies on the other side of it, but she knew well enough that it just meant a bunch of them would be fired.

They said animals might behave strangely on the day of the total eclipse. 

But truly – we couldn’t tell whether the dog was affected at all by the eclipse …. because acting strangely was sort of her ‘thing.’ 

At least she was awake for the event, which gave her a slight edge over the teenagers in the house.

Today she didn’t feel like really working. But the good news was that she had a full day of meetings ahead of her. These apparently counted as work – even when they were unproductive nonsense. She just had to train herself to be still and quiet during them. Kind of like napping with her eyes open.
