As is my way, of course I encouraged the family to complete the vote compass.
And as is their way, they were totally into participating – for there is nothing they like better than a family contest or a chance to compare themselves to each other.
Also as is my way, I was compelled to make a chart of the results.
Despite frequently making charts for a living (though I have people to do that now), I’d not had any occasion to make a scatter plot in excel, so needed to call upon the m4d sk1llz of my lovely husband because it is the most ridiculously unintuitive thing I have ever seen. I think I had forced Vincenzo to do this once, I will apologise on Monday.
