Work, Work, Work

I need a job. I know that that is a familiar cry these days, but the fact is that although I need a job, I don’t really want a job. Don’t get me wrong - it’s not that I don’t want to work. I love to work. I work all the time, but the work I do doesn’t really afford me the benefits that I have come to know and love. Like insurance. Or an income.
