Rule 529

Today was just 24 hours? Are you sure? It feels like more.

Rule 527

Is interpreting a real job? Anything is a real job if someone pays you to do it. Politics and prostitution prove that point.

Rule 526

The definition of a successful workshop: everyone stayed awake while you taught something they didn’t know when they came in.

Everything else is a bonus.

Rule 522

When you and your team show up wearing the EXACT same outfit (down to the socks!)

It’s even better when the CDI does too.

But it’s sublime when the whole team is gender diverse.

Rule 516

Two interpreters are walking down a hall, a third walks past and says, “hello.”

The first looks and the second and asks, “how would you interpret the meaning of that?”

Thank you Henny Youngman!

Rule 515

I could interpret that joke if I had an hour, a team of CDIs and a crate of tequila.

(We pass out the tequila and by the end of the hour everyone will think whatever the CDIs and I came up with is funny)
