Doesn’t that look like a fascinating job? I love it that we personally know this great guy!! Job security during the COVID-19 pandemic: The tigers must be fed and cared for. Not just ANYBODY can do that!
Heck, you just throw the meat in his mouth, right? Ah, there’s more to it than that? Uh… ya!! It’s not a job I could handle. How about YOU?
What’s the most fascinating job you’ve ever had?
Mine was teaching K-8 in a juvenile hall near San Francisco, It was back in the days when kids waiting for foster care placement were incarcerated along with older kids who were jailed because of violent behavior.
But that’s a fascinating story for another day.
Tell me the story of your fascinating job… or one you know about because a friend or family member had it.
I’d love to hear from you. Have a Fabulous Friday. See ya later.
There is a name
for 5-7 5-7 5-7 5-7 5-7-7 poetry.
I just saw it on a blogger’s post
And now I can’t find it.
But I said I would try it.
So, here goes:
In the heat of day, A day under August’s sun, Stood fields of flowers – Springtime flowers so alive – Spreading colored joy. It’s highly unusual To see such a sight. Generally summer’s sun Scorches them early. But this year they testify: God shows us TENACITY!
What’s the name of that poetic form?
Try it… it’s fun!
