People I Want to Meet Someday

I want to meet the person who makes up the names for paint colours. Sand fossil. Winter Wheat. Golden Cricket. Flamingo.

No wait, I want someone to pay me to make up paint colour names. Highlighter yellow. Burnished squirrel tail.

I also want to meet the engineers who design breast pumps. Don't get me wrong. I am very attached to my breast pump (pardon the pun)and it does an important job. But, can you imagine the social furor that sort of job description might cause at engineering cocktail parties? "What do you do?" "I design breast pumps." Would it garner the social value that bridge building might?

And let's not forget the women who beta test breast pumps. Now that's brave.
