Once upon a time, back at my very first, entry-level tech writing
job with a very small software company, I asked what my title was, so it
could be put on my business cards.

My boss asked, "What would you like it to be?"

I thought for a moment, and said "Well, I've always wanted to be
Vice President."

"My wife is the vice president," he said. "How about Senator?"

So that's what went on my cards...
