My sister called me today because her job isn’t awesome but I am, so she was making up for it. After the usual fretting about how we are each turning into our mother, we had this conversation:
Kelsey: You know how kids are like, hella strong?
Me: You mean how they’re weirdly muscular?
Kelsey: Yeah. Do you know why that is?
Kelsey: It’s because they have to climb to get everywhere. If you and I had to climb on the couch to sit on it, we would be hella strong too. So the question is, why don’t we have giant couches?
Me: We should make them. We could sell them. It would cure obesity.
Kelsey: I don’t care about curing obesity. I just wanna be hella strong.
Me: So do I. So does everyone. There is no way this would not be a successful business model.
And *that* is how my sister and I are going to remedy the fact that we need new careers.
