So it was Xmas and all that. Yay. Time spent with people that share more DNA with you than you’d like to admit. Searching questions when you come into focus.
A lot of people ask us “What is it you actually do?” (something similarly enquired by snooty relatives at large family gatherings).
Typically, Jamie and I will respond by blushing at each other, before one of us either takes it or throws the other under the bus to tackle the inquisitor's challenge.
But we usually say something akin to: “Dave’s a mid-career copywriter with ideas above his station; who really likes cannabis…”
Or “Jamie’s rich and varied experience is largely self-taught; a dedicated pupil at the University of Life with a penchant for pot”.
Although we’re more ‘show’ than ‘tell’ – we demonstrate by doing; not by saying what we’re doing – there are occasions when you just need to yell it from the rooftops and give the world a peek of your proverbial knickers.
