Here’s this week’s offering. Other stories are on the way, just dealing with a lot more stress and recover from said stress than I wish to divulge…
by Miles Rost
After 35 years at the gas works, I never thought that I would still be working.
I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I wanted to do after I got done with my career. The first year was the hardest. I had no clue, especially after Millie died.
I was driving down the A34 and was stopped to get petrol. I saw the building, the shabbiness of it, and the garage. I inquired with the proprietor whether he was interested in having another worker. He grumbled, but agreed.
My first job with him was to retread older tires, or to cut them up.
So, in short, I guess I can truly say that even though I’m working, I’m…retired.
Oh, groan! 🙂
🙂 Hope you’re feeling better, Miles, and that your stress has retired, too.
Miles, it took me a few times to actually get the pun at the end. I must be tired. 🙂 I would have probably gotten it right away if you’d said it out loud. I hope God can blast some of the stress away from you. Keep the count-down clock ticking, brother.
Sorry to hear you’re going through so much stress. I understand and am sending my good thoughts your way.
I love a good play on words. Well played, sir.
Perhaps you’ve got to many miles on you, hence the stress. Good luck with that.
Great buildup to a groaner of a pun.
