A very flattering email landed in my computer on Friday morning: an invitation to apply for a teaching position at a local college.
“…we need to increase our staff of talented Instructors,” the note said. “Do you like to see others succeed?”
I sure do!
“Do you have great communication skills?”
My clients think so.
“Are you honest with a great work ethic?”
This was looking better and better. I was stoked – a possible new gig, and apparently there were medical and dental benefits involved. For a longtime freelancer, those words were magnetic. Avidly, I read on.
“Are you passionate about cosmetology?”
Sadly, the extent of my knowledge of the beauty world is that there’s more to it than choosing blue-black mascara or none.
The registrar doesn’t know how I got on her email list but to be honest I don’t really care. It was fun to imagine what I might do with a captive audience and a wand of blue-black waterproof.
