Writing Prompt: If you could learn a trade — say carpentry, electrical work, roofing, landscaping, plumbing, flooring, drywall — you name it — what skill(s) would you love to have in your back pocket?
They always say hindsight is 20/20. And after I stopped working after my second liver transplant there were times when I though, “why the hell did you go to grad school?” Had I thought about it (and made had a a small glimpse in the future) I would have taken a different path, a more practical path, and despite what the economy salons and funeral homes will always have business, and since the idea of touching a dead person creeps me out (although I could do the administrative portion of it, but I think I would be depressed seeing all those grieving families).. so salon it is.
I’ve even mentioned it a couple of times to family that if I could go back I would have opened up my own salon…. I’m not dead yet, so I guess there is still time
Until Next Time
