If I win the lottery, I'll spend at least 10 hours a week riding your ski lift.

Good thing. You pretty much need to win the lottery to be able to afford a lift ticket anymore...

I was watching a documentary about the making of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. There was a guy who applied powder to the models' rear ends. That's the job I want.

I've worked on many a fashion shoot, and I can tell you - those guys are not usually impressed with girls rear ends so much.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Some would argue the best job is in fact no job.

Assuming you have the financial wherewithal, of course.

That would be a tough job on powder days. You better get this written into your employment contract.

Nah...

I don't dump my shifts on other people when it's a tough day now, and it's deep-seeded enough that I couldn't do that kind of thing once I make my hay. A busy day once in a while keeps a worker honest and appreciative of the times it's not crazy.
