What Jeremy wants to talk about all the time is his work. I used to do this terrible thing where at bedtime, I’d ask Jeremy to talk about some work issue and he would get all excited and talk for 20-30 minutes without stopping and I’d gently fall asleep to the rythmn of his voice and the fact that I didn’t understand any of it past the second sentence. Then he couldn’t go to sleep because he’d be all excited about work. To be fair, I don’t do this anymore, it’s a little mean and self-serving.
There are only a handful of people in the world who know what Jeremy works on in enough detail for Jeremy to have a truly satisfying conversation about policy. Jim is one of these people. OMG, the policy chat over pizza and ice cream – the two of them were happy all evening long.
