18 Jul Smackdown
We went out for lunch and there was a group of people from the Digicel cell phone company at the table next to us, in their company shirts. Bella pointed and said, “See those business people having a nice break from work?”
I said, “That’s like us. I’m having a lunchbreak from work.”
My child withered me with a disdainful look, “Mum you dont got a job. You dont work. You’re a writer.”
OhEmGee. How am I supposed to ever be recognized as a legit author, with a legit career that has actual meaning and substance – when my own child thinks I’m a lazy slug-a-bug with no job?!
