I’ve been married almost 27 years to the same woman and I just realized she is perfectly qualified for a career I’ll bet she’s never thought of pursuing.
She’s out of town on business today so, of course, I’ve been thinking about her.
I think about her when she’s here, too, but a different though came to mind this morning.
She has this odd little behavior that, when I’m in a good mood, is charming.
She loves to cook and is very creative and accomplished at it, but she often uses the wrong tool for things.
For example, she usually uses a spatula to lift chili out of a saucepan or pot.
Yes, her chili is thick and she does a good job serving it onto plates using a spatula, but it would be far more efficient with a spoon, slotted or otherwise.
Sometimes she uses a spatula (it is her favorite tool, it seems) to serve something for which it doesn’t work at all.
This all reminded me of something and I realized that my wife is highly qualified for an important job, especially as it is being performed lately.
She could be an education policy maker.
Add in that she knows little or nothing about education history and she meets all the criteria of most of the people doing that job today.
I wonder how it pays?
