Meanwhile, Ted started his new job: Professor of
Economics Architecture. Loved the way he flip-flopped between being their buddy and being their authority figure. As is usually the case, Barney's advice (in this case, that Ted shouldn't take questions on the first day because it shows weakness) came back and bit Ted 7 minutes into the class. Then again, had he not listened to Barney, he might not have been in that classroom long enough to make the necessary impression to meet the mother. She was in that class, so Ted's accidental foray into economics was fate lending a hand. I can't wait to see what she does next.
