Two weeks ago I stopped shaving. The school district I sub for shut down the week before their scheduled spring break. A few days later the movie theatre I work for shut down as well. The theatre does not allow facial hair so I saw this as an opportunity to add shaving to my spring break.
Until that point I had been working about 60 to 65;hours a week between the 2 jobs so I didn’t really do too much in terms of job hunting over the extended Spring Break.
Today would have been the first day back to school after Spring Break. So I decided to start looking for work,today.
I had thought that the clean shaven approach might be my best bet. I drove down to a local grocery store that I knew was hiring. I went to the service desk and they said to apply on line. So much for shaving I thought.
I went back home, applied on line. I went on a walk with my wife and a few minutes before we got home , the store called and asked me in for an interview. I must have put the best face on it as I was hired on the spot.
This is my return to blogging. It has been since July 2019 since I have posted anything. In the past 2 weeks I have gone from too busy to even think about blogging to plenty of time on my hands due to losing both my jobs (at least temporarily) to the corona virus. I had considered coming back for the A to Z Challenge and these recent events have allowed it.
My Theme will be Capitals. Due to the random nature of my blog, and specifically my mind, each entry may only be somewhat related to the Capital mentioned. For example, it is entirely possible that Friday April third’s entry will feature the Krispy Kreme themed love song I wrote in 1995 because I wrote it while living in Columbia, South Carolina where I first encountered Krispy Kreme.
Last year I participated in the A to Z challenge and my theme was the music of the Sherman Brothers. At the end of my entries this year, I will include a link to last year’s entry as a bonus. As a sign of a good faith, click here to see last year’s reflection post. I’ll be back on Wednesday to start off this years extravaganza.
