It's all about the Firearms

Me: My kids don't think what I do is cool.

Tech Lead: You're kidding...

Me: Nope. They said if I was really cool, I'd be working on the AC-130.

TL: *blink*

Me: True. This happened two weeks ago at dinner. They were ragging on me relentlessly.

TL: I'm lost...

Me: It has something to do with machine guns or something.

TL: We have nuclear strike capability. That trumps machine guns.

Me: Maybe it's a missile thing too?

TL: We're frickin' INVISIBLE! You can't beat that!

Me: I think it's because I'm Mom.

TL: Sheesh.

Its not a nuclear strike capability ... you just handle Special Stores.

Eh, either way, the funniest part to me was 'But... we're invisible!" That made me laugh... constantly trying to trump the other plane. I suspect at take your child to work day, my boys are going to get ragged on. I'm bringing them in so they can see the new project, plus the one I'm wrapping up.
