Okay, between the posts about Haiti and orphans and child labor . . . I decided it was time for something lighter. Over at Babble, I’m sharing some of my strange former occupations. I think it’s always interesting to hear what kind of jobs people held on their way to their “grown-up” occupation. Before I became a therapist-turned-writer, I had a long line of jobs . . . some of them typical, and some of them more unusual. Spoiler alert: one of them involved sliding down a fireman’s pole and then dancing on a bar.
