"How would you interpret it when a job is described as 'always exciting'?", Susan asked me this morning.
"To me, that sounds like 'overworked and terminally disorganised'."
"How about 'always interesting'?"
"That would mean 'you'll be on your own because we neither know nor care what this job really involves, but we think it's important because the last guy asked some pretty sharp questions'."
I like to keep bedroom talk polite.
