What is it?

I love my Mom. Mom and I have a knack for talking about anything and everything. If I’m going shopping, I would rather call my Mom to go with me than anyone else. If I see some great idea on HGTV, I want to talk to my Mom about it. If I try a fantastic new recipe, I want to talk to my Mom about it. If I have a problem or want sympathy, I want to talk to my Mom about it. If I want to discuss my work or business…give me my Dad any day!

My field is Information Technology (geek speak for computer nerd). The other day, I emailed my Mom and was describing a potential job. I described the job as Managing I.T. for a company. I talked to Mom later that night on the phone. She asked me, “Exactly what would you be managing?” I said, “What do you mean?” She said, “Well, in your email, you just said that if you took this job, you’d be managing it. What is it?”

“Uh, Mom, that’s I.T., not it.”

“Oh.” Awkward pause… “Would you like to talk to your Dad?”
