Word Problems

My daughter asked me what I did for work the other evening since I was returning home after dinner time.  I initially started with my answer about consulting but stopped myself.  Instead I told her I helped people with world problems.  She looked at me to judge the seriousness of my answer and asked for me to clarify.  I explained that life is a series of word problems, the opportunity is connecting ideas with other ideas to create the best possible answer.  She thought for a minute and then asked if the questions were challenging.  I paused and said it depends on the quality of the question and if the right people are willing to help with the answer.  She laughed and asked it I wanted to help her answer a question for school.  That was the best question I was asked all day.
