Instead of writing a bazillion articles for lawyers, I’m writing them for roofing companies. Also quite pleasant. I learned a lot about roofing in Kentucky, and it’s fun to put the learning into words. For money, no less.
I really enjoyed roofing. It was the perfect combination of brutal and precise and long breaks. Long breaks, you say? Why yes. I could go inside and hang out with my family and check my email whenever I wanted to, which turned out to be for about half an hour after every hour of work. Not the sort of thing you can do with a professional roofing crew.
I think if Gewel and I ever got a house with a messed-up roof we could do an amazing job of renovating it, but I think my skills will be confined to that. Too bad.
