I can ask how their trip was, where they’re staying—oh, and I can tell them I enjoy working with their son! I’m just so giddy right now. This is such a welcome and wonderful distraction from the actual work I ought to be doing.” Coworkers later confirmed that in return for generously introducing everyone to his parents, Nieman more than deserved to take off early and show them around town.
