First of all, I am tired. Two hours in the classroom, thirty minutes at the grocery store, one hour in the kitchen (making pumpkin turkey chili, it was tasty), and nine hours at work. Whew. I had a nice chat with a doctor while I prepared his espresso beverage. He kept asking me questions and finally discovered that my family had lived overseas for awhile.
Him: Aha! I thought you seemed... like you had been places.
Me: Haha, really, what do you mean?
Him: Your accent is very neutral. You also carry yourself differently.
Me: Would you like whipped cream on your mocha?
In all seriousness, it was a good conversation. The doctor had some wise and encouraging words re: careers and life.
Second of all, check out this brief interview with the Redpaths, a family of four who embarked on a year-long round the world adventure in 2009.
