They say hints of your future vocation manifest themselves during childhood. On a recent vacation Marcus took with Lisa and her family to Hong Kong, they brought home this gem of a clip. I’ve been spending my whole life talking people into things they didn’t think they needed (I’m in marketing); looks like my son’s path is headed the opposite direction. At this rate, he’ll be talking people off ledges by 15.

This exchange took place immediately after Marcus and his cousin Lucas were turned away at the roller coaster because they didn’t make the minimum height cut-off. (Note: this is a YouTube clip; you may not be able to view this from work.)
