I might also be open to more menial work. I saw this job once that I would LOVE to have. I had an appointment with a lawyer. When I went to his office, his receptionist was reading a novel. She put down the novel, asked whom I an appointment with, notified the attorney, then went back to reading. I'd like to have a job like hers. Even though it wouldn't pay as much as teaching, it appeals to me because teaching is hard work relative to that. She was probably some partner's relative, so I probably don't have a chance at a job like that.

Oh, be careful, tmeri. I don't think you've ever had an administrative support position, have you? They can be awful. You have no control over your workload, things get hectic, and it's all you can do to keep from going crazy.

You may have caught that gal at a quiet moment. Believe me, most days it is not like that.
