“Aili, what do you want to be when you grow up?” I asked my daughter as I was getting ready for work.
“I wanna work in the bank with you!”
“What job would you do in the bank?” I asked.
“I’d eat the suckers,” Aili replied with confidence.
I wanted to correct her and tell her there is more to working in a bank than suckers, but then I realized that some days, that pretty much is my job so I let it slide.
“Can I come to work with you today?” she asked hopefully.
“No, but I will bring you home a sucker.”
