The Easter Holiday season kind of took me by surprise this year. Maybe it's because winter has lingered so long. But now the trees are budding and flowering and everyone is getting into the springtime 'feel' of things. Oddly, this time of year always reminds me of one of my very first jobs. When I was in high school (and NO, I won't say when that was) I had a part time job as a florist. I worked holidays and during the summer making deliveries and learning how to make sprays for funerals, corsages for prom, and basically 'arranging things'.
Valentines Day, Easter, and Mother's Day were our very busiest times and during those holidays, we would load up a van deliver flowers all day long. I only worked for them for a short time (because, after all, I was only a teenager) but I'll never forget making Easter deliveries in a big white bunny suit. It was white and furry featuring pink inner ears and belly. Lordy! Talk about HOT.
I've done a lot of interesting things in my life. I've been a newspaper reporter, worked in a clothing store, did some substitute teaching, and I lectured on Native American culture and folklore. Today I write erotic romances, which I must admit is an verrrry interesting occupation and one that makes people kind of blink and go HUH??? No, not your normal kind of job.
Still, to this day, when someone asks about things I've done, it's the bunny suit I remember most. Tell me about your weirdest, goofiest, strangest jobs.
