Future Plans


D: [out of nowhere, in the back seat of the car] After I get my Master’s Degree in Robotics and Video Game Design from MIT, I plan on moving to Alaska.
Me: Oh. What do you plan on doing there?
D: [with a distinct ‘duh, mom’ tone in his voice] Building stuff.
Me: Ah ha. Why Alaska, specifically?
D: It has less pollution than the mainland United States. Did you know Robotics is a relatively new field? We didn’t even used to have that phrase. It used to be called, “Automata.”
Me: [flabbergasted] Are you reading a book on this right now?
D: No, I just have a really good memory for things I read. However, sometimes if I do not write it down I might not remember it.
