JOY OF JOYS! Tim, my silent son of twenty years, filled out a job app at Bear Creek. He did not get hired yet..he might not, but he interviewed.. AND HE TALKED!
This has been my biggest worry in life, but to know that he can do it is more of a relief to me than having the doctor tell me "it's just a cyst". I was so proud of him, he just walked right up to the counter and talked...to a perfect stranger (well, not really perfect...she was kind of chunky and had glasses). But he did it. So if he gets hired this season or not, I don't care, but for his self-esteem, it would be nice to get a reward for jumping such a huge hurdle.
political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
