Career Opportunities

I was over at Hot Tamales, and it reminded me of the job search I'm in the middle of, and a conversation with K.
So you all know I'm not thrilled with my current 'professional circumstances'. I was thinking about it the other day (as usual), trying to decide which way I want to go, what I want to do, and thought "I could get my CDL license & become a truck driver!" Open roads, see the country, something different every day......(no, I wasn't really serious, but I thought it was kinda funny). So I called daughter K to get her reaction. Always fun times - especially when she's not sure if I'm serious or not.
Me: "So K, I've been thinking about the whole job thing, & I really think I should just get my CDL & become a truck driver"
Silence. Really...............long................ silence.
K: "You WHAT? You are NOT. I'D RATHER TELL PEOPLE MY MOTHER IS A CRACK WHORE THAN A TRUCK DRIVER."
And although I'm really not trying to alienate or offend truck drivers OR crack whores, I'm keeping this real. Deal - it's not personal.
SO. We chatted for awhile, & as much as we get along and are willing to work with each other on things, we really couldn't find middle ground between truck drivers and crack whores. We came up with nothing. Shock & surprise, I know!
I've been online and checking the paper tonight, just seeing what's out there, and I think just looking at the salaries (important for a single Grandma who LOVES to spoil the heart squatters) and the availability of jobs, I'm leaning towards brain surgeon. Must call K & see what she'd rather have me do than THAT.
