@MissCellaneous No, definitely. I mean, that's what I'd tell people regardless of whether or not I were Veronica Mars.

@Tuna Surprise At that age my little brother was hugely into the Norby series, which is about a robot who looks like a trash can, written by Isaac & Janet Asimov. Maybe that kind of thing + simple robotics project/kit? Or Calvin & Hobbes collection books?

@bananalise @mochi, you are so right about the noise cancelling headphones. Sadly I'm at the front desk so I can't do that. I'm left with no other choice than to type really loudly. Just clacking away here.

Which is when my coworker in a silent office eats an apple or plum or banana or ALL THREE and somehow manages to incorporate every gross sound possible. I posted a screed about this last week but it is HAPPENING AGAIN AND HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THAT LIKE IMAGINE EATING A BANANA WITH YOUR MOUTH OPEN WITHOUT USING YOUR TEETH JUST YOUR TONGUE AND THE ROOF OF YOUR MOUTH and also it is inexplicably juicy and HOW do you even MAKE an apple SOUND like that I mean is it made of STYROFOAM?

Fruit time is the worst time of day/life
