Thursday. I like this job.

Sure, I complain about it. But that's  because I have a problem with authority. This afternoon, as I enjoy my frosty, free beer, I reflect on why I like my job.

1) Beer cart on Thursday afternoons.
2) The office closes early on Fridays in summer.
3) Generous vacation policy.
4) A good client.
5) Enviable medical insurance that includes dental.
6) Two paychecks a month. Yea!

I reserve the right to bitch about it again. But today, I appreciate having this job and it makes me happy.
