    I Could Never

    Ideas come to me at late hours of the night, I could never sit down for that many hours without my butt getting numb. I enjoy being ouside. No, I could never work a 9 to 5.

    9 To 5

    I don't think I have ever had a 9 to 5 job and doubt I could I have worked most of my life on an on call basis or shift work and it is just normal to me. Ok maybe I'm not normal I think that is a setting on the clothes dryer.
