#2 son has accepted a visiting assistant professorship in economics at the small liberal arts school where he went as an undergrad. I’m very proud of him. He is quite young to have such a snazzy job, they’re paying him well, and he’ll be two hours away instead of 14 hours away.

My husband also accepted a job as a machine operator at a company that makes composite deck building materials from recycled plastics. This sounds like a good job to me, but he kept the job for just one day before quitting.
