Signs of a better job

At one of the worst jobs, the manager said a great job offered challenge, responsibility, achievement and pay. Maybe so, but his company didn't. Still, I'm taking this sketchy idea and building on it for this morning's speech at Toastmasters. Unless somebody considers the mnemonic acronym, thy might even think it's a serious speech.

Second place

As luck would have it, my speech was second. David won with 'Stuff of dreams' while the other speeches were 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'Throw mama off the train'. They were all fine speeches. It's raining again. However, it's quite a bit warmer. Yesterday, David asked me about the phrase 'Elvis has left the building', a phrase still in use today, 27 years after he left the planet. (or so we are led to believe)
