I didn’t expect to find such a great job
I am not in show business, per se, but I am show business adjacent, and that’s pretty wonderful too! I basically stumbled into it, because I was young and foolish and moved with my bestie to the nice big city so he could chase his dreams of fame and fortune.
It turns out that moving to the big city without any excellent skills, experience, or money was not the best move! At least I had a way to make money, he thought his looks and charm would be fine.
They were not! We went to tryouts for a stage play, and came to understand that my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C skills were more pressing to the theater than his singing and dancing skills! By the end of the day I was easily hired as the on-call Heating, Ventilation, and A/C appliance worker for the theater, and he did not get a call-back. After that our relationship changed a lot, mostly because the upper class kid was resentful that his blue collar Heating, Ventilation, and A/C buddy was now making the cash and kicking off a modern job in the city. I thought being an on-call Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech would be something that was part time, but I never hurt for work these days! Whenever they have a show for the public they want me to be there, even if the a/c appliance is working well, just in case of an emergency. This works for me to be honest, because it means I get paid to rest and watch plays and hope the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C appliance keeps working great. And it does always work fine, because I know how to operate Heating, Ventilation, and A/C appliances with the best of them.
