I came out to Wisconsin to help my dad, and look for work while I was here. But God had other plans- my dad found work. And, simply to confirm the stereotype, the job was in Florida. So today, he left in the middle of a snow storm for Tallahassee, and his job in sales with tax-deductable charity annuities. (I have no idea what that is. I just memorized it.)
And I'm left quoting Greta Garbo in Grand Hotel, but with irony.
