Day 177, November 16

The other night, my husband came home with some upsetting news about his job.  We'll be fine--it just means a bit of belt-tightening for a while.  Now I don't mind tightening my belt, but it's on the last notch as it is.  (That's a story for another day.).

In the spirit of being supportive, I decided I'd better look into a way to make some quick money.  Following are some of the things I've come up with:

- Starring in an adults-only films.  (At 61, I'm very, very adult.)
- Taking phone sex calls.  (I can put my voice to use--maybe it'll sound throaty, instead of croaky.)
- Penning a soft porn/fantasy novel.  (Soft porn being a story where the man cleans behind the refrigerator, scrubs the toilet, and mops    the floor--that's why they call it fantasy.)
- Working at Hooters.  (Surely the famous restaurant has need of a geriatric waitress with an artificial hip.)
  And, my favorite:
- Being a taster at a Krispy Kreme donut shop.

Gem for the day:  Just finished applying at Hooters.  If you can't climb onto a chair, then onto a table without assistance, they don't want you.  Do you think I can sue for age discrimination?


  1. Cleaning behind the fridge and scrubbing the toilet is soft porn? I'd say putting things AWAY in the fridge and not MISSING the toilet is soft porn...the other surely qualifies as hard core...
