Ask a Nerd Dad #3

Dear Nerd Dad,

After career day at school, my son is disappointed that I didn’t’ become something more interesting than a mid-level security analyst. All he talks about is “Jack’s dad makes video games… Cindy’s mom fixed people’s brains… Why can’t you go to outer space like Jimmy’s uncle?” How can I compete with that?! What is a nerd supposed to do to impress his kids without risking his life on re-entry?

Embarrassingly boring,

Average Analyzing Analyst

Dear AAA,

Well, I write these articles and record a podcast for nerds so all jobs can’t be winners, can they?
