As the prospects for work keep bringing me more hope, I can’t help but to dust off my wish list. I’ve kept it secretly tucked away, and hidden. Sort of like my ab muscles.
I had another job interview.
When I really want the position, more than I realize, I tend to turn into a Wonder Woman of amazing answers. I can always tell when I’m not really interested. Especially when I suddenly react to their portrait of a typical day.
“You would want me to do that? Everyday? I can’t see how this could be any fun at all.”
Recruiters tend to not like that kind of reaction. Or so they say.
This latest interview in question really has jazzed me up like no 4th of July fireworks ever could. The job appears to be tailor made for my own self. The pay is acceptable. And now my fantasy wish list starts lighting up with fairy dust. The top of the list is of course an iPad. That goes without saying.
But what most do not know is I have this thing. Some may call it an addiction. Others could call it hereditary (my mother had it too). And some may even go as far as putting together three little letters in a very accusing fashion: OCD.
I love watches.
There. I said it. So maybe I whispered it. But it’s out there. For all to see. Have I ever told you about the time when I needed to clear up space so I could move out to the USA to be with the love of my life? I donated over 10 pairs of watches to Goodwill.
Call it a small watch museum if you want.
Now that the dream of earning a steady income is almost at my fingertips, I feel the need to grace these fingers with something I’ve coveted ever since I knew of its existence: a Tag Heuer Watch.
A watch is the major place where I can claim SIZE DOES MATTER. The bigger the better. With lots of dials. God knows I would never understand how to work all these dials, but they are amazing. Metallic casing and bracelet. Style. Prestige. The come hither look that screams “I have arrived. And I wasn’t late thanks to this piece of beauty!”
I may need to dish out an entire week’s pay for this little gem. Or maybe not, since I found the perfect place to hunt one down!
Better late than never…
