Like many of us, my team at the office went to remote work with about 8 hours notice. We were fortunate on our team of eight, that in that we already had folks working in offices in other states so the idea of communicating with each other using tools like Slack and Zoom wasn't entirely foreign. Still, going from a fairly tight group of folks you like to see everyday to working in your kitchen with no one but the cat to hear you rail against your upload speeds is a rough transition.

"What do you do?"
"Oh, I'm a geographer."
"Oh. My brother collects rocks."

"You might be thinking of a geologist. A geographer studies the shape of the earth. Not rocks so much. Except the one big one."
"?"
"I make maps."
"Oh! Maps are cool. What kind of maps do you make?"
"I work for an archaeology firm."
"Ah. How many dinosaurs have you found?"
"!?!"
