My friend Leann posted this link on Facebook, so I'm using these prompts when they work, and when they don't I'll write about something else.
My First Job
The first job I can remember having outside my own house was house- and cat-sitting for our neighbors across the street. They liked to go away for a week or so at a time, so my job was to collect the mail and their paper, and check on the cat twice a day. Inevitably, Kitty-Kat, their black-and-white cat, would leave a furball surrounded by vomit at the top of the stairs to greet me, and the litter box would hold a gift as well.
I remember when they got a home security system installed. Thankfully only once did the alarm go off, and I got it turned off before the police arrived. Whew!
I did this for each of their vacations until we moved after my high school graduation.
