International carrier day

October 10, 2003

Let me say right here, in honor of International Carrier Day, that I learned no valuable lessons about life, economics or journalism from my stint as a newspaper carrier. All I learned was that it sucks to be the only 14-year-old on your block who has a job.

    I learned that no matter how beautiful and peaceful it is, I was not meant to be conscious at 4 a.m. (unless coming at it from the other side, of course)

    C’mon Tom. It couldn’t have been that bad being the only 14-year old on your block with a job. Just think when you get paid! You’d have been the only 14-year old with a paycheck. 🙂
