Parent: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Kid: A writer.
Parent: Humph! What’s your backup plan?
Kid: A famous blogger.
Parent: No, no, I mean how are your going to make money?
Kid: A series of low-level, intermediate jobs that offer adventure, excitement and research opportunities.
Parent: I see. You mean… like the job you have now bagging merchandize at the Super Center?
Kid: Hey, there are some really interesting characters coming through Wally World.
Parent: I think that joining the police force, the military or even the merchant marines would offer more background for you.
Kid: Capitalism. Everything’s capitalism with you. You don’t understand art.
Kid: By the way, my girlfriend’s pregnant.
