Once again, my older brother Shadrach the silverback (a.k.a. Shadley-Wadley the Golden Boy) gets all the praise. This time, it's in the form of a postage stamp commemorating his breakthrough research in the study of snow algae, also known as watermelon snow. This breakthrough has a lot to do with the current ecosystem, and that's all I know.
My parents are going to pieces over Shad's latest honor. Just now, they emailed me to ask when I'm going to stop with the blogging silliness and get a proper job like Shad. "I do have a proper job," I told them. "I'm a class-act chef. I'm CEO of my own company. Sometimes, I play in a band."
They pointed out that no one exactly knows what Bradley Enterprises, Inc. actually does. I told them that it doesn't matter. My core clients believe in what I do and back me 67%. My parents should have been thrilled by that news. Instead, they asked me what I did to alienate the other 43%.
Are everyone's parents so product-oriented?
