4 Jobs I’ve had

1. Demonstrating how to smoke opium*
2. Baskin & Robbins ice cream scooper
3. Babysitter for John Irving's kids
4. CEO, Top Ten Sources

*I'm serious. In high school in my town, there was an American Tobacco Museum and I got a job demonstrating old tobacco and smoking artifacts -- quite the gig for a serious non-smoker -- including netsuke, opium pipes, snuff boxes. At the end of the tour, I handed out free chewing tobacco.
