The Sunscreen Song (part deux)

In the previous entry I wrote out the lyrics to the Sunscreen Song and one of the lines goes as follows;

“Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don’t know.”

Trust me, even when you get to almost 50, one can still not know what to do with your life, I think I’m on my seventh career and am starting to think that my career is changing careers.. I was pondering this the other day and wondering what would be my next career move and came up with the following possibilities..

Funeral Director…
OK OK I know that may seem to be a bit of a downer but from a job security perspective people are always going to continue to reach their expiry date and require your services – at least that is until they discover the fountain of youth, as an added bonus, you get to work in the dead centre of town (groan!).. In my early twenties I had a friend who did just that and he said that it could actually be quite fun, he was almost as mischievous as moi and told me some stories I couldn’t repeat here to protect the innocent but his handle on the CB radios of the time was Stiff-Shifter… says it all really..

Valentine Card Writer:
Hmmm shouldn’t be toooooo hard;

Roses are red, Violets are blue, Orchids are expensive, Will dandelions do?
Violets are red, Roses are blue, If you go into photoshop, And mess with the hue
Roses are red, Violets are blue, I can row a boat, Canoe?

President of the United States.
Yes, never happen, not with a name like mine.
Barack Hussein Obama
