I like your cousin's attitude. Depending on the audience <g>, I tell them that I
--write software end-user and/or reference material, with a capsule of whatever the company I work for at the time produces
--act as a translator between Alpha Geeks and Ordinary People
--work with computers.
An answer for everyone, and everyone in their place.
