It's not everyday that you get a glimpse into the future of your 5-year-old's career choices. I am fairly certain, however, that today will go down in history as the first time Coop scratched upon the surface of what may become his gainful employment.
Mid-way through the morning I got a random voice mail message on MY cell phone. It was a bit incomprehensible but was a jumble of panicked, excited words that amounted to:
"Cooper, I need you. I can't defeat this level on the Ben 10 game and I need your help because you can defeat it. Call me. Oh yeah, this is Ethan Johnson.*
After laughing hysterically I handed the phone to Coop and explained he had a phone call. With a shrug of the shoulders he proceeded to carry on a 10-minute tutorial -- in. great. detail. He actually ended the call with a promise to "come right over and help".
To recap. He successfully carried out a Help Desk Tech Support Call and made an appointment for a Tech House Call. Help me.
*Obviously the names have been changed to protect the innocent.
