Somebody’s gotta report on the people that have dirty jobs.
My latest assignment for the paper has me following around people who have the dirtiest jobs in the county. It’s gonna be a series, written in first person, after I follow around some people who have to do some messy stuff.
This morning, it was the road department and the guys who have to go pick up the dead animals off the side of the road. Dirty. It smelled bad and OHMYGOSH the maggots. Ew. I think I have a pretty strong stomach with things – except for when something happens to someones eyes or MAGGOTS ARE INVOLVED. Eeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
I won’t go into the whole story, at least not yet because I am feeling a little gross from even thinking about the maggots again, plus I don’t want to ruin it for you guys – you should read the story on Wednesday when the paper comes out. I’ll link it on my Facebook.
Tomorrow morning I’m hanging out with the sewer district, luckily my allergies keep my nose stopped up and I’m not gonna be getting the smell at its strongest….upcoming dirty jobs may include fence painters, garbage men, miners and who knows what else. It should be fun, I’m excited.
First I was Lois Lane, now I’m Mike Rowe.
OH. And I got some AWESOME pictures at Ironman this weekend. I am proud of myself, I’ve finally learned how to shoot pictures of things while they’re MOVING. So, I’ve come a long way since I had to cover football games in O-ton and got maybe one good picture if I was lucky. I’ll post a few soon, maybe. If you’re lucky.
