The Ten Least Worky Things I Ever Got Paid to Do

This one is straight--I mean I didn't make any of these up.

1) Hold my hand very still just like that for about 20 minutes (hand model).
2) Splash around in a swimming pool and lie in the sun for much of a weekend (sunscreen tester).
3) Dress up like Elvira for two hours for a rich couple's Halloween party.
4) Draw a coupla cartoons for a newsletter.
5) Be a test subject for the Psych department.
6) Juggle at a kid’s birthday party.
7) Act.
8) Look after horses.
9) Model for a painting class.
10) Teach creative writing.


  1. Doesn't teaching creative writing, like any teaching, mean grading? And isn't grading work?

  2. Yes and yes. Still makes the least worky list.
