I spoke with a friend yesterday who was “snowed-in.” And she was upset that her office building was closed and that she would have to spend the entire day at home. (Huh?!) Her words to me were, “What am I supposed to do while sitting here all day?… I enjoy my job! At work I can get so many things done and my co-workers are so funny, I spend the whole day laughing!” (What?!?!, what is this enjoyment she speaks of…) I sooooo could not relate to what she was talking about, she was speaking a foreign language. I quickly explained to her that I would NOT, could NOT feel her pain.
After we hung up, I thought about our conversation and wondered could it really be that “normal” people can achieve such a thing? The lyrics from an old LL Cool J song keep popping into my head “I enjoy what I’m doing plus I’m paid in full.” Well of course that is true for someone like LL. But what I want to know is could this really be possible for “everyday” people, or was my friend just acting special?
Either way, I can’t think of a greater achievement. My hope is that one day I too will become one of those fortunate people who’s job is so fulfilling and satisfying that I would rather go to work on a snow day than stay at home.

P.S.: 5 Points to the first person that can name the song.
