Changing Careers

I’m looking into changing careers again. No new education required. The new career? I want to be a Couch Potato.


I believe I have all the needed qualifications for being a couch potato and without much effort.
I have eyes.
I’m round.
I roll unevenly.
In this weather, I feel baked.
I've never been called Spud, but that's easy to fix.
I like sitting.
And most importantly, I have a couch.
Now, tell me, am I qualified or not?

  10. If this is a government job you are over qualified. But send me an application. :)
    Sorry, still swamped with work.

  11. How about a computer chair potato? If it pays over $1.00 an hour, I'm in! :)

  12. Any extra room on that couch? Add a book and it sounds like the perfect job.

  13. Hello from the comfortable couch. I will get applications for those who want one. I'm a sharing person, just so you know.

    Yes, Mason, books are a must. :) And laptops. And sweet tea.

  14. Sure ... just need a laptop and a bottle of wine and you're set for the long haul.

  15. I'm too small to totally qualify, but I do feel baked in this weather and could hibernate the rest of the summer on the couch! Hilarious post. I love it. (I just read your comment on Tiki Hut and came over to meet you. I think I've been here before, but I must have lost you when when I got a glitch in Blogger and had to start all over with my followers. Anyway, happily I'm here now. I too grew up in the Fifties; was a teenager then, so I feel a connection to you.)
