I know. I know. However, humble readers, I have news:
I am, of this moment, officially a cheesemonger. Someone is actually going to pay me decent money to spend 5-8 hour shifts hanging about in a cheese shop, making tapenade, and drawing on the chalkboard. I am going to be paid to attend MANDATORY cheese-and-wine tasting classes. This is part of my TRAINING.
Taking a year off is getting better and better. =)
