How I decided not to become an electrician.

For those who can't watch the movie here is the written story.

how i decided not to become an electrician

[scene1]
When I was growing up, my father started to suggest different career opportunities for me because he felt a little bit anxious about my being indecisive.
[pause]
“You could as well become an electrician, see. It's good money, you'll even make it into your own company one day!” he said in earnest. He works as a technical physician assistant. He had made his point. But he never mentioned it again.
[pause]
After one day of consideration I decided not to become an electrician.
[pause]
I'd become an artist instead.

[some frames later]
I don't think he even recalls that moment which was kind of a turning point for me…

[scene2]
Two weeks ago before I got here to pin this test print of Thilo to the wall to see how large it should be, I decided to make a detour around my parents' home since I don't live there anymore and see them quite seldom.
My father and I sat at a restaurant table. I was going to treat him.
“Did you ever imagined me becoming an artist?” I asked him eventually.
“No, god, no!” he said with a laugh, and added “but I respect your decision. There seems to come some money around – you invited me, after all.”
[longer pause]
“You know what? You can still become an electrician!”
I'm glad he didn't stress the subject. We silently enjoyed our meal.
