On April 22, 2016, I received a token of appreciation from the West Allis Police Department for my collaboration in providing urgent translation services for an important press release.  The timing of the request could not have been better since I had just spent the better part of the morning talking to elementary students about "A Day in the Life" of my career as a Spanish interpreter and translator and what I love about it, which ironically, is that no two days are alike.  Alas, variety is indeed the spice of life, and today was definitely a unique day.
