How many times in one's life does one leave the house in the morning to make networking calls and come home that afternoon with a job? Not too often, I suspect, but that's what happened to Sam yesterday!
He had come to California with his new wife, loaded with credentials but without a job, hoping to find one in the next few weeks or months. The TV news these days is full of stories about unemployment, so he was being realistic rather than optimistic about his chances.
But, dutifully, he dressed in his best blazer and headed out in search of employment. Halfway through the day, I read his post on Facebook that he had landed a job!
So, of course, we needed to celebrate. My Beloved trotted down the hill to purchase a bottle of champagne and I prepped a hearty victory meal of Black Dragon Tri-tip from Baron's Meats in Alameda. We toasted and tasted and hugged and laughed, giddy with relief and champagne.
Ain't life grand?
