I have this friend who has had, like, a hundred different jobs. An exaggeration, but not by much. Florist, nurses’ aide, pet groomer, substitute teacher, police dispatcher, cake decorator, and more. At this time of the year, I remember when she worked at a store that sold Christmas decor. Really nice, expensive ornaments and other decorations. They also had a full-service tree decorating service, which was something at which she excelled. For the two years she worked there, I got the best gifts. Shiny, lovely glass ornaments that remind me each year how much she has brought to my life in the past 20+ years.
Next week, I’m having a pre-Christmas lunch with my friend, who is starting, yes, a new job in January. I can’t wait to hear what adventure lies ahead for her.
