Dream A Little Dream For Me



I believe that sometimes the universe is trying to tell you something. It's whether or not you pick up on it, that sets you on the path of that particular destination. Sometimes the cues are subtle and sometimes, not so much.

Today, not so much. The cues were more of the "in your face type" so I couldn't help but pick them up. Funny, long shots have a way of reaching inside of you and grabbing a hold of your safety zone and then they hammer away at you until you tuck them back away, under lock and key.

But I've been here before. This ain't my first time at this particular rodeo I'm older and smarter this time. I call it realistic, really. I was having a conversation about my other passion with a friend of mine, via-email, just yesterday. It got me thinking about the good old days and when the conversation ended, so did the memories. Locked away back in the saftey of my heart.

Until this morning when I opened my email to find a few of my friends had sent me this link.

Subtle? No. Ironic. Yes. And maybe that's just what it is. Irony.

I know I'm too old, but just for today, I'll allow myself to dream about what could be.......



C.P. Casting is seeking a FEMALE, ON-AIR REPORTER from BOSTON with excellent knowledge of the RED SOX -- for a job with NESN to work live and in recorded segments during ALL of the home AND away Red Sox games.

They want a REAL Bostonian who is fun, gutsy, and able to improvise well, on-camera with sports fans at Red Sox games.

This is a large time commitment, working at the home games, AND traveling for many weeks to away games. This is paid work, and all travel expenses will be paid.

Women who have the time, the on-air experience, the improv. skills, the knowledge of the Red Sox, and who grew up here in Boston should reply ASAP!

In the real world, i know this is very sad for you. This sounds exactly like something so awesome for you and your particular talents.

But then there are those words,

"humungo time commitment".

Any mother worth her salt realizes what those words mean.

And then the dream gets further and further away because the kids need picking up from school, dinner made and help with homework.

AND that outweighs pretty much everything else.

because Moms are so very awesome when they are just there. Doing a million things that are never even noticed. When they are being taken for granted. Cause this creates awesome human beings out of their kids.

Which is the best, most important dream anyone can have.

so here's to living the real dream!

And maybe just maybe, when the kids are out of the house, maybe that job will still be there!

Or my dream? TRAVELING!!

like to Paris!

;)

ps. maybe you can make it work though. If you can, i sure hope you do! :)

No, no Miss Candy. They need to give ME that job. As a former New Yorker and a Yanks fan, I'd be effing awesome at starting wars about people pahking their cahs and yelling things about Nomah and insulting the Green Monstah.

We're mortal enemies technically, you and I. :) Wanna wrestle?

Go do it! There are few that have the combo of looks and knowledge that you do.

Scott Oglesby said...

Oh I could so picture you doing that! You’d be great at it. You have the looks, the personality, the vocabulary the ….you have everything. Maybe you should give it a shot…please!

I know that the universe tells us things….all day everyday. You just have to always have an open heart and a quiet mind to perceive them.

Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT Do IT
