However, Brandon's new job is different and so I like to hear about the various things he does each day because it always changes. One day he practiced evading pointed questions (although I thought he didn't need any more practice at that). Another day he went and listened to various people from the Senate talk about things associated with the Foreign Service. His first day he heard all about bugs and the various places they can be planted that you thought were only possible in spy movies.
His day always makes for interesting dinner conversations.
When he came home yesterday, I asked Brandon the usual question about knowledge gained that day. Oh, he said nonchalantly, we learned about bombs. And avoiding carjackings. And how to get out of roadblocks that involve Taliban members and machine guns. Yes, and of course robberies. But, you know, robberies are so blase.
It's too late to back out now, but I'm glad that we didn't hear about all of this vital information before we joined the foreign service.
