Thursday Thirteen

Roles I have played -

1. Daughter (isn't daughter or son the first role anyone plays?)

2. Wife (what being married is all about)
Me & hubby in old age

3. Sister (means I have a sibling)

4. Friend (hopefully a good one; I try hard, anyway)

5. File clerk (first job - well, I left out babysitting)

6. Receptionist (second job)

7. Legal Secretary (third job)

8. Newspaper reporter (fourth job)

9. Freelance writer (life-long dream and longest-held job)

10. Retail clerk (short interim job helping out a friend)

When I rocked and rolled.
11. Guitar player in a band (high school)

12. Adjunct college teacher (a few years ago)

13. Farm helper (pretty much all my life; my father farmed, my husband farms. It never ends.)

And these are not even all of the roles I might take on as my own. College student, community service worker, volunteer, etc. After 50 years, it can be a long list.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 416th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Besides what you already know, I've been a nightwatchman, Greateful Dead peddler, day care teacher, worked in retail and a Boston boutique, foster care provider and nursing home dishwasher. Life is so interesting!

  2. It's interesting how the roles we play change over time, isn't it? My T13

  3. It's interesting how our lives are constantly evolving and changing with different roles.

  4. Isn't it funny how many roles in our lives tie in to our source of income?

  5. Very cool list of roles. And Alice makes a great point!
