Good for You - You Deserve It!

Scott and I love to watch Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel. The basic premise of the show is this: the host with rugged good looks goes around the country and finds out first-hand what it's like to do some of the nastiest jobs in the country. He's worked gutting fish, cleaning septic tanks, inseminating horses and pigs, and all sorts of other fun jobs. I love the show because it really makes me appreciate the fact that I don't have to do these jobs.

I thought about Dirty Jobs this morning when I found out that the 8 co-workers who split the $365 million Powerball jackpot worked in a meat processing plant. I say worked because only three of them showed up for work yesterday. These people are taking home about $22 million each. I guess that's enough to live on, especially if they invest wisely. At any rate, I'm not jealous. I'm happy for these people that they no longer have to handle dead pig.

And I'm glad I never had to handle dead pig!

I watched the live news conference where the winners were announced. They interviewed them and all of them were just ADORABLE! So sweet and excited. Just Regular Joe's (and a Jill).
