553. he's a numbers guy

recently i was talking to my brother doug, when he suddenly asked about my son.
( fyi: doug sells vinyl for a living—vinyl as in lp's, records, those things that require a phonograph to play)
doug said, so when does he graduate from school.
i said, this weekend. can ya believe it? a master's in statistics of all things.
doug said, tell him one word. vinyl.
i asked, vinyl?
he said, yeah vinyl. tell him, his uncle doug has a job for him in vinyl.
i said, oh, i don't know. he's a numbers guy now.
then doug said, i know! that's what i'm betting on because i have a number of things for him to do.
