A new stream of income

Good news! My dad got a job!

On Monday he starts as a trainer for Essilor, The World's Leader in Opthalmic Lenses. He'll be traveling frequently for his new position, and he just found out he'll be headed to Dallas next Tuesday for a few days.

While I'm certainly happy for him and my mom, there is a downside: He is quickly becoming very self-important. He hasn't been braggy per se, but I can see it in his eyes: That spark of renewed meaning and purpose that can be really annoying to the people around you. Maybe I just got used to the basset-hound expression he's been wearing of late. These things are tough to quantify.

As a positive, he'll be getting a paycheck again. Which means now the mooching can really begin in earnest.

I am really disappointed at Fierce Beagle readers. Only one comment about me getting a job. Maybe it is because no one knows I was out of work for 14 months. Maybe it is because no one knows that my wife and I moved from Chicago to find me work. Maybe it is because no one knows who I am since I am rarely blogged about. Hmmm, maybe I should be more upset at my daughter for lack of interest in me in her blogs....
