“So. What do you plan to do with yourself up here?”
He asked me that after we had caught up on two years worth of events, over sandwiches and Starbucks coffee at Santi’s. I replied with the candor that I had learned from him after four years of having worked for him.
“I’m looking for a job. Do you know of any?”
Without missing a beat he said, “Yep, I’ve got one for you right now.”
And that is how, my friends and neighbors, I started working for my (no longer) former boss again, doing bits and pieces (but rather large bits and pieces) of web work that I used to do aside from the other things that I used to do. But this time I am home-based, uploading the stuff I did to a server and emailing him to say where to find them. Yes, I love the internet. I work on my own time (which is sometimes all the time, then again sometimes not) and I get to work in pyjamas and tank tops too. Amazing how I can forget about the heat when I’m working.
