When I got the job, I thought, “Oh well, I guess the family will go skiing without me.” I expected the “Come in tomorrow morning” phone call any day. What I got instead was, “Uh, we need to order your equipment. We’re hurrying as fast as we can,” to which I replied, “No hurry! Can I go skiing instead?”
When you’re unemployed, you can’t wait for a job. But once you get a job, hey, push it off as far as you can.
++ Thank you for this unexpected gift of enjoying a week away with my precious family. ++
