My dad asked an innocent question:
Where are you living currently?
I think he knew I was in Germany, perhaps Berlin even, so I guess he wanted more details.
Giving him the street address or the suburb probably wouldn’t have added much value to his day. So I figured I’d dish him up some Google Maps love.
First I added our home location (bottom left). Then I figured I put in a pin for the library where I’m working (which hasn’t had internet for the last week since the local McDonalds’ T-Com was broken – it’s been killing me).
I then I added all my walking, bus and U-bahn routes. I couldn’t stop.
Since the birth of our son one year ago, he’s become a grandfather. So when he asks the question Where are you living currently?, what he’s really asking is:
How is my grandson going?
But I’ll pretend I didn’t know that, and just show off my snazzy Google Maps instead.
