Today’s one-liner is again courtesy of our #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian. She dropped out of college after one semester and worked for ten years in retail and the food service industry. Then she returned to college and got a degree in Anthropology, and now works as an archaeologist.
She emailed me about her week at work:
The nice part of the _____ project is over, sadly – now we’re in a horrible nasty floodplain full of briars, whippy little saplings, and mudholes that try to suck you down into the Dead Marshes to light little candles of your own if you don’t follow Gollum’s path. I have more thorn punctures and scratches and bruises on my legs than I do normal skin. I even got a thorn stuck in the top of my head on Thursday and one got me on the INSIDE of the lip and I couldn’t get free of it!! Ugh! Yesterday I wore coveralls and zipped my coat all the way up to my nose, with the hood up so all that was exposed of my face was covered by my glasses. I need armor. And a flamethrower. Thankfully, we’re not going out on Monday when it will be 18 degrees. :p
Still better than retail.
