I Know Lots of Different Languages


My son is looking over my résumé, including the part where it says I’ve worked with lots of different languages.

“You don’t know a lot of languages,” he says.

“That means programming languages,” I reply.

“Oh. I thought it meant languages like German or French.”

“That wouldn’t be very helpful in my work.”

“Yes, it would.”

“People I work with don’t speak those languages.”

“It’s impressive. You’d get a raise. Walk by your boss and say, ‘Me encanto.'” He accompanies this with a finger point-and-shoot gesture.

“What does that mean? ‘I enchant myself’?”

“‘I’m lovin’ it.'”
