Conversations with Maxwell

Max: Adrienne, what does “director” mean again?
Me: It means I’m in charge of everything. I know that sounds like something I’d make up, but in this case, it’s true.
Tammy, under her breath: That does sound like something you’d make up.
Max: So if you want a pizza, you can be like, “HEY, YOU! GET ME A PIZZA!” And someone will get you a pizza?
Me: …

    The question is do you prefer minions or lackeys, oh wait director not evil super villain.

    His new favorite is “fartastic.”

    I would totally have gotten you a pizza. I might have even let you eat some of it. :)

    Tam, There’s something wrong with that boy.

    Chad, There is even a conveniently located pizza place there. Conveniently located everything, really.

    Chad makes his pages go to Jitters to get everybody milkshakes. That’s why he should be a director.

    I feel like proper shake acquisition should be Chad’s topic to talk about at the unconference.

    And I agree that Chad should be running a library. I really want to get a West Side Coalition thing going, too.

    This is funny. I think you should put Maxwell’s hypothesis to the test.

    I couldn’t quite figure out how to explain to him that this isn’t something I’d want to do, even if I could.

    Maybe he had seen someone demonstrating that military style of management.Let him know they only use it in the military…and dictators,of course.The Japanese were the first,I think,to demonstrate that there are far better management models for the Industrial age.
