Dean. California

Dean: I know five languages. 

Me: go on

Dean: Russian. Syrian. Turkish. English. Arabic

Me. Wow

Dean. I thought about joining the military as a translator but my family freaked out. 

Me. So what happened.

Dean. I'm pretty brown. I'd be viewed as a traitor over there. 

Me. Yea. There's no defense of that. 

Dean. I've been translating for homeland security. I help interview people seeking asylum. 

Me. Wow.
