I've found my Calling!

I've started a job. It's a great job. I scan comic books. I have a lot of comic books to scan. Approx. 33,000 of them. Let me spin you a yarn of how I serendipitously fell into such lucrative employment.

I was on the fast track to my first million working freelance at warehouses around the Chicagoland area. This particular season I was working at Zeus and Co showing the boys a thing or two how to give a 30# bag of dog chow the ol' heave-hoe. I was at the warehouse wiping the beads of sweat from my brow when I looked up to find three pallets stacked high. A lesser man may have seen simple comics books on those pallets, but I saw opportunity. Faster than the shift whistle could blow I was on the horn with my boss. I struck up a deal with that smooth talk that got me into this business in the first place. And before you know it the wheels of progress were turning. And that, my friends, is how you find me here. So just remember a quick wit and some elbow grease is all it takes to succeed in this world.

You guys take confusion to a whole new level.

I can honestly say that I have no clue what just happened.

Love you,

"Faster than the shift whistle could blow I was on the horn with my boss."

Best sentence I've heard/read all day. That's some real speed you have there!

Well...I'm not proud of my initial stats. I'm clocking in at 71.5 comics per hour. But this is cutting edge field and I'm at the vanguard of technique. I'm hoping to raise my numbers.
