All of a sudden I am planning product demos and consulting documentation and doing conference calls and fine-tuning document templates and chasing leads. This is the professional life I never thought I would have or even want. But I'm just happy that unlike trying to be a teacher this life never makes me think "Here is the most important thing going on right now and someone recklessly put me in charge of it."
Actually I did have pretty much exactly that thought today while preparing a demo. But that expression of bewildered incompetence is just an approximation of a metaphor of what it means if said about being a liberal arts teacher.
