Spokane’s least interesting job shadow

I would nominate myself. Though I guess it is actually the kid who is the shadow.

In any case, watching me work has not proven to be scintillating.

“OK, Skipper, just have a seat there and I'll narrate my thoughts for eight hours. Hang on for hilarity! Look out —here comes some off-the-hook typing!”

I stopped agreeing to those get-togethers quite a few years ago. Sometimes the kids asking sound disappointed. But if they only knew, they would thank me.

“Watch this Madison! I'm going to answer some email! Whoomp! There it is!”

But surely there is sausage-making even less interesting than my own brand. And with Take Your Kid to Earth Day — or whatever it's called now — coming up, it makes me wonder.

Who in the Spokane area has the job that would be the most boring for a young person to observe from close up?
