Writing and Other Wacky Jobs
Yes, I think writing is a wacky job. I think all the fun jobs are. Think about it. You get paid to make up stories (if you're lucky)and you can wear anything you want. You can go to work in your underwear and not get arrested. You can show up at your computer late and not get written up by your boss. You don't have a boss!
But there are other wacky jobs out there, and I'd love to have any of them.
1. Sexy Siren on the Treasure Island sidewalk show in Vegas. Three shows a night, sexy co-stars, and a sinking ship at the end. Unfortunately, I'm past my sexy siren years. Hubby doesn't think so, but I'm a realist. Besides, I can't hold a note.
2. Mortician. The dead has never freaked me out. I'm a nurse, I've dealt with dead bodies before, no biggie. Problem here? Sometimes I want to have a nice lively conversation.
3. Character on Glee. I love that show, and they always look like they're having a good time. Problem? I can't sing, or act.
4. Sidewalk entertainer in New Orleans. I saw a few when I was there for a conference, and boy, were they having a good time. They are sort of like writers. They make their own hours,get paid to entertain people,and they are their own boss. Downside? They don't have a set income. They have to hope people find them interesting enough to give them money. Second, it's hot outside! All that dancing and jumping around. And some of the costumes! They were great but they couldn't have been comfortable in all that heat. Of course some of them wore barely there costumes, and I'm not that brave. Darn, that's another reason I couldn't be a Treasure Island siren.
What about you? What are some wacky jobs you'd like to try? What's stopping you from trying them?
