  1. Even the not famous…in no particular order: sock counter, cocktail waitress, ice cream cake decorator, long-time temp, advertising copywriter, 2 weeks as a bookkeper, half-way house administrator, typing library file cards, etc., etc. A varied (checkered) past is good fodder. xo

      very nice! We all have to have them…sigh. I’m intrigued by the ‘sock counter’ position you held. Is it as obvious as it sounds? I used to scoop Ben & Jerry’s – that was my first job. Not a bad one, but ice cream stuck all the way up your arm is pretty gross. xo

  2. Sock counter was exactly that, in department stores. Two years at Baskin-Robbins and the eternal, inescapable ice cream smell put me off it for some time. xo
