A; What did you do before you came to this place?
B: Well I’ve been retired some 30 years. It’s hard to remember what I did before that. But I guess I worked in agriculture – you know crops and stuff – in California.
A: Oh you were an Agricultural Economist?
B: Nah, not that psha. I worked with fruits and vegetables, things like that.
A: thinking …..hm I used to teach Agricultural Economics at the University of the South Pacific in Suva Fiji…….THAT was a long time go. And I knew zilch about agriculture – my fields were International Trade and Economic Development. But I could talk with with you about fruits and vegetables in Kenya.
B. I wish I had better eyesight.
