Unemployment - Too good to last.

So, uh, guess who got a part time job?

{{{sheepishly raises hand}}}

Up front I want you to know that I didn't go looking for it, it came after me.

You see, it is harvest time up here (soybeans and corn) and a lot of wives drop whatever they are doing to help their husbands out on the farm. This leaves some businesses (and bowling teams!) short handed.

I was asked to come in 2-3 days a week for just an hour or and hour and a half over dinner (or what we Okies like to call "lunch") and help out. I probably will be there through the end of the year.

The place where I will be working is, get this, a coffee house. 'Cause who loves coffee more than me?! Everyone. (Except The Commander.) It is a small place, six tables. Family owned (My husband's aunt's son's wife's mom). They have a lot of coffee drinks and smoothies. And they serve soup, sandwiches, and salads. They also have daily specials like creamed chicken on biscuits and hot beef commercial (Yeah, I had to ask too. Open faced roast beef sandwiches.)

So in addition to my earnings (Enough to pay for my bowling and gas money to get to bowling every week.) I get a free lunch on the days I work! Woooooo!

The plus for The Commander is that at least three days a week I will be showered before noon.
