    Gang,

    my Big-Boy job has this wonderful element to it called “Personal Leave”, and it’s where they PAY ME to NOT COME IN TO WORK! THAT’S why one gets their Masters Degree!! It’s also how I’m able to pull off a handful of Spring/Summer gigs. Check out the “Shows” tab as proof that I ain’t dead yet!
