Dangling Conversation

Me: Hey, I have an idea!

Stephen: Um. Okay. Can you give me a second to move into fetal position before you tell me?

Yes I am on a bit of a "let's change our lives in profound and potentially expensive ways" kick, why do you ask?

Knowing My Limits

I don't care how difficult the job market is or might become in the future, I can tell you one thing for sure.

No matter what the pay and benefits, no matter that I could see the world (kinda), learn a new language, and be surrounded by potentially hunky men in naval uniforms.

Even though it's a given that one should never say never about anything, I'm going to put my foot down, plant my flag and prepare to died on this particular hill.

I will never and by that I mean never ever apply for work on a Russian submarine.

Just say niet.
