No career is perfect

Handwritten page of a diary dated March 20, 1999

told me if I was thinking of changing my line of work I should make a list of pros and cons of my current job.


Traveling around the country with my lovely assistant, Ginger.
Making people laugh.
Proving to Dad that I can make a pretty good living without having to wear a suit … or even a shirt.
Working outdoors.


Having my head stepped on.

Sure, there’s only one con, but having headaches every night is a pretty big one. But at least my headaches aren’t from stress, like the headaches suffered by guys who wear suits and work in cubicles.
And Ginger isn’t the kind of girl who wants to live in the suburbs. Ginger might leave me if I quit show business.
