Seems like there’s a lot of job interview questions designed to make you lie. “What are your long term goals?” “Oh, to work at an entry level job where I have no hope of a pay increase or promotion.”

Sometimes a set schedule is reassuring. You know what’s going to happen the next day. No surprises. Sometimes that same schedule can get you down. You know what’s going to happen the next day. No surprises.
It’s funny how you can get really used to a specific brand of something. It’s not so much that you like coffee, you like this specific grind, with this specific brand of sugar at this temperature. Mix up any of those variables and it becomes “What the heck is this?”
Children can really emphasize how normal our bodies are and how all of our adult behaviors are just things we made up. I’m still trying to teach my son that farts are hilarious. They are boring because he hears them all the time. They don’t really become special until you are with a bunch of adults trying to hide them.
Sleep has such strength when it teams up with boredom. Mix in a little responsibility and I’m knocked right out. If I HAVE to go to sleep? Forget it. Staring into the dark void for hours on end.

I never had a job with a full body costume but I had plenty in the “embarrassing uniform” category. The worst was the pizza counter in a grocery store.

At least I didn’t have to wear a big fake mustache like the dude in the logo I was dressed as?
