what do people do all day?

For a long time I've had a running list of jobs I'd like to try out for a day. I added a couple more this week, and remembered some old ones...

- Using a flame gun to lay down warning strips at the edge of train platforms (I saw a man doing this once, and the flame gun was truly amazing)

- Running the big water cannons on a fire-fighting ship (a new addition)

- Church bell ringing (but only the ones that are so big they pull you up into the air)

- Operating one of those massive crane winches

When I was little I used to want to work in a paper factory as well, but then I realized that industrial machinery is not all anthropomorphic and smiley-faced as it is in Richard Scarry books.
