I think there's certain jobs out there that when mentioned sort of end the conversation. Perhaps I'm entering a career like that, here was a recent conversation that occurred when I picked Amelia up from school.
"Are you Jan's daughter?"
"Hi. I'm .... I served with your Mom on the school board. You're a doctor right and you've been in Kenya?"
"Yes, I am."
"What are your plans, are you returning to Kenya?"
"Well, we are still interested in medical missions, but I'm going to start a fellowship in pelvic reconstruction."
"Oh, so you're an orthopedic surgeon?"
"No, I'm a gynecologist."
A look of surprise, a slight smile and then, "Well, I better go get my kids."
