Just One of the Perks

Boss: Hey, can you come out here in the shop and help me with this truck for a bit?

Me: Yup.

Boss: (Bouncing on the front fender of the truck) Hear that squeak? I need to locate it, bounce on this while I get under and look.

Me: That’s what he said.

Boss: (chuckles as he lays on the creeper and rolls under the truck)

Boss: Ok, start bouncing it……ok, let me move over a bit.

(At this point I now have to straddle him with my legs while he is under the truck and I’m leaning on the front fender, prepared to bounce it.)

Boss: Ok, start bouncing it again.

(Now a customer walks around the front of the truck to me straddling the lower half of the boss’ body while leaning forward on the fender, bouncing up and down.)

Customer, eyebrows sky high: Is that part of the job description?

Me: No, just one of the perks.

Boss (dying laughing): Isn’t she great, man?

One Mile Smile

by Sarah Clouser

Mind of Chaos

How easy it would be, to sit here, telling the world that my struggles were all due to outside sources, that my 2am, scattered-sleep nights were caused by a destructive family life, or the villainous boys I met in high school. How easy it would be to place the blame on undeserved circumstances. I am a strong believer in the “we make our own choices” concept of life, and that life does not discriminate in placing innocent people, in hard paths of being. For me, the life-defining choice was to allow myself to fall victim to my own mind, and for my inside, tyrannical anxiety, to control my outside actions. That moment, whenever it might have been, has visited me in nightmare-like ways, all throughout my young adulthood.
