Carrying a Tune?

Filed under: Reflections — ktismatics @ 9:47 am

Yesterday while helping friends move out of their apartment I mentioned that, while going to school, I had worked the night shift at UPS loading parcels into cross-country semitrailers.

I’d never thought of loading trucks as operatic before, but I was too busy hauling stuff to ask her what she meant.
