Righthand got me to thinking when she explained that cows were brought into the living room but were escorted to the milking parlor and she used to be a milkmaid with a 150 farting cows that had to be milked twice a day and have their tits bathed. I have a cousin that worked at UT in the Agriculture department and his job was washing and steralizing portholes in cows (apparently they had surgically implanted portholes to observe the four stomachs)...I guess someone has to do it. One of my crane operators raises deer, didn't even know there was a market for pedigreed deer but apparently there is and his biggest return is in selling champion deer sperm. I mentioned that I would rather be running cranes than jacking off whitetails and he informed me that they used an electric prod inserted into the deer's rectum to stimulate ejaculation, just like they do with bulls and there went not one but two misconceptions about other peoples probable professions. I was certain there were diviant and talented people somewhere that devoted their entire working life to , well, you know...I mean what about that Ron White story about Sluggo, his bulldog that loves to go to the vet? Well, that got me to thinking about the worst job I ever had and thought maybe some of you would like to share those little mistakes in career planning. I have held jobs as a painter, roofer, brick and block mason, carpenter, sheetmetal worker, welder, railroader, crane operator, tug captain, commercial diver, musician, gunsmith, bouncer, bounty hunter, commercial fisherman, logger, rod-buster, pilebuck, salvagemaster, blaster, deckhand, engineer, demolitions consultant, project manager, horse trainer, ferrier, dog trainer, magazine publisher, writer, and sound engineer. I am sure I don't remember them all but I do remember them all being interesting. I have had such a lucky existance for having always been surrounded by quality people willing to teach and share their livelyhoods with someone that was willing to learn and work hard at it. The only job I ever had that sucked was unloading sides of beef from a truck route when I was a kid, but the driver was pretty cool, so even that had its moments. I guess I can't really recall ever having a job that I didn't enjoy. Maybe I'll volunteer to help Danny milk his deer, there has got to be some challenge in running them down to stick that prod up their butt.
