This story (which you may have already read here) was written in response to The Green’s Study’s “Worst Job I Ever Had” Contest.
I am grateful to Michelle at The Green Study for awarding me an Honorable Mention (including a donation made in my name to The Red Cross, a lovely mug, postcard, and a feature spot on her blog today). I am honored that she could look past its disturbing nature and thought it worthy of a prize! 🙂
Be sure to check out the other winning entries — along with Michelle’s blog (TheGreenStudy.com) — it’s terrific! Thanks!
She was sent one The Green Study Coffee Mug, a cheesy postcard from Minneapolis and I made a $25 donation to her local Red Cross chapter.
The Worst Job I Ever Had — OR — A Hairy Guy & an Old White House
by Leisha at cancerinmythirties
I was eleven years old. I’ll give you a minute to picture an eleven-year old. At 11, you are just a kid. So much to learn. So many mistakes to make. You still need someone to look after you.
But we needed the money. So I placed an ad in the newspaper:
Summer Babysitter/Mother’s Helper: Responsible 11-year-old girl available to care for your child(ren). CPR-certified. 3 years experience. References. Light housekeeping/cooking if needed.
