On this day, we were talking about my job and school prospects during COVID-19. We have discussed this a million times before and we will likely discuss it a million times more! There was a lot to talk about, especially when there are layers upon layers of planning, contingencies, and the next apocalyptic event!
Near the end of the conversation, Mom says, “You have a lot of boo… opportunities.”
I tilted my head and guessed the syllables I did not hear, “Boolean?”
“Beautiful! You have a lot of beautiful opportunities.”
“Boo…lean?” I tried again.
“No, brilliant! You have brilliant opportunities!” We also shouted a lot in the car.
“Ohh. Boolean would work too! Most of these opportunities are either true or false statements.”
“You’re a nerd!”
