I don't have time for a long blog post today because I've been so busy lately. Not busy with anything that's going to make the world a better place, or at the very least keep our portlights from leaking when it's pouring down rain.
Nope, just busy with working on marketing and publishing stuff for my book, which I'm sure you don't want to hear about. Unless you find book formatting fascinating, in which case, talk to me about bleed in the comments.
For the rest of you, I'll tell you about someone at the marina who smiles even when he's working on crappy stuff. Seriously crappy stuff. Like driving a golf cart with a container of stinky stuff around the marina. Gross stuff that gets pumped out from people's holding tanks. You don't need any more description than that, do you?
So, there I was, walking back from the shower inhaling the not very pleasant smells that accompany this golf cart wherever it goes, when I heard the guy driving in it, call out, >>Pea soup. 50 cents a bowl for pea soup!<<
I laughed so hard that I had to gasp for breath. Which really wasn't a good thing because I got another giant whiff of that "pea soup" in the process.
I love that this guy has a sense of humor even when literally doing one of the crappiest jobs at the marina.
If he can have a smile on his face while pumping out holding tanks, then I sure as heck can have one on my face while I deal with something as trivial as book cover bleed.
By the way, I'm so busy that I haven't proofread this post at all. Did you laugh out loud when you read that? Me too. I never proofread these things, as you probably know already.You'll be glad to know that I have an editor for my book.
When you have a crappy job to do, do you manage to keep a sense of humor? If so, how do you do it?
