Best Job Ever

Thursday, September 1st 2005

Driving home from work today, I was in a bit of a funk. The general tone of news today had me understandably depressed.

A little later on, there was a knock at my door. I answered it to find a young girl, maybe ten years old. She was selling items for her school, in one of those timeless catalog promotions. As I halfheartedly glanced through the pages, she noticed that I was still dressed in my khakis, nice shoes, and a button down shirt.

Girl: “Gee, you look like you have a pretty good job.”
Me: “I’m a librarian over at the University. Just started a few days ago, actually.”
Girl: “Wow! That has to be the best job ever!”

I smiled, and bought something. This girl is going to grow up to be one heck of a saleswoman.
