I worked as a lifeguard one summer and another in a book store. The two jobs were separated by several states and as many years but they link together in my mind.

My ex husband thinks Iím flighty and impractical. He says I donít stay with jobs. My father thought the same as does my sister. My daughter is quick to agree with this consensus and so am I.

Their spin however is that there is something inherently bad about my style of life. I, of course, can see no other way to be.

They pity me. I pity them.
